In the 250th year of the Royal Academy of the Arts, this exhibition celebrates the talents of Anthony Green, an essential and influential figure in the history of the Royal Academy over the last 50 years, in the context of 20 of his fellow Academician friends and associates.
When he was elected to the Royal Academy in 1971, at the age of 32, Anthony Green was the youngest Associate. He had been exhibiting at the Royal Academy from the unusually young age of 26, so preparing the way for his highly consistent and distinguished Academician career. The artists among whom his work is shown in this exhibition have shared with Anthony an ability to instil with intensity of feeling the most unassuming elements of English life and landscape, Michaelmas flowers in a jug, a discarded crossword puzzle or the view of a train through an open window.
Artists exhibited alongside Anthony Green include
Edward Bawden • William Dring • Tristram Hillier • Ruskin Spear
Julian Trevelyan • Leonard Rosoman • Betty Swanwick • John Ward
Bernard Dunstan • Diana Armfield • Peter Coker • William Bowyer • Sydney Harpley Donald Hamilton Fraser • Ken Howard • James Butler • David Tindle
Olwyn Bowey • Ben Levene
Our show coincides with the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in which the work of gallery artists, Diana Armfield, Anthony Green, James Butler and Bernard Dunstan will be exhibited among others.
A fully illustrated 86-page exhibition catalogue will be available from the gallery for £10 (+p&p)
