The Romantic Impulse: British Neo-Romantic Artists at Home & Abroad
Osborne Samuel Gallery have moved to Dering St and open their new space with an exhibition of Neo-Romantic British art.
Private view date: Wednesday 24th May, 6-8 pm
Dates: 25th May - 23rd June
23 Dering Street
Neo-Romanticism is a broad description of one of the most significant movements in 20th century British art; its boundaries and content governed by a spirit of place and an impulse to convey the quintessence of the British Isles. Influences include landscape, weather, history and literature rather than any specific stylistic interpretation, language or school. The exhibition traces its lineage, from the early pastoral scenes of Blake and Palmer, through to Sutherland and the key decades of the 1930s and 1940s, when Neo-Romanticism found its unique voice during a period of relative cultural isolation in these isles.
The artists most associated with Neo-Romanticism are Sutherland, Nash, Piper and Moore, followed by the younger generation of Ayrton, Craxton, Clough, Minton, Vaughan and the ‘Two Roberts’, Colquhoun and MacBryde. Work by all these artists is included in this exhibition.
OSBORNE SAMUEL is one of London’s leading galleries, long established in the heart of Mayfair. The gallery began as Berkeley Square Gallery and became Osborne Samuel when Peter Osborne and Gordon Samuel joined forces. The gallery specialises in Modern British Painting and Sculpture and has a high reputation for the quality of its exhibitions and publications.
Gallery Director, Peter Osborne said:
THE GALLERY HAS MOVED. We are not going far, from Bruton St, Mayfair round the corner, to a big gallery space at 23 Dering St (at the top of Bond St opposite Bonhams). We will be in the same building as Annely Juda Fine Art with other galleries nearby. The new space will allow us to continue our well known programme of exhibitions of Modern British and contemporary art. We will also be showing at Masterpiece London from 29 June - 5 July. We look forward to welcoming you to the new space.
