For our forthcoming exhibition Aspects of Modern British Art we have selected a group of works that give an intriguing overview of the breadth and diversity of British art in the twentieth century.

Included in the show will be works by well-known artists such as David Bomberg, Prunella Clough, Richard Eurich, Roger Hilton and Ivon Hitchens. There will also be rare examples by lesser known painters, such as Martin Bradley (b.1931) and an important early work by Sam Haile (1909-1948), a leading English Surrealist artist who was prominent until his tragic early death in a car crash.

Secret, 1964 by Harold Cohen is one of the artist’s most significant paintings from the mid-60s, a time when he was exhibiting with the Robert Fraser Gallery, home to many fashionable artists of the ‘Swinging Sixties’ era. This will be shown alongside Allen Jones’ three-dimensional work Double Take, 1969, a classic British Pop-art image.

British constructivist art will be represented with pieces by Anthony Hill, Kenneth Martin and Mary Martin. Works by Frank Auerbach, Patrick Caulfield, Barry Flanagan and Rita Donagh are also included.
