'Away from Realism' - from the Permanent Collection

26th November 2018 - 13th January 2019

Studio Gallery 6

The journey away from 19th century Realism was a heady mixture of revolt and exploration during the 20th century.

We are showing a selection of work from the Permanent Collection which demonstrates some of the directions taken by artists with shape, colour, line and form.

The restless, linear, semi-abstract watercolour here is 'Sunlight in a Wood' by Robert Mackechnie, RBA (1894 - 1975) where the focus is on the tangle of branches against broken light.
