Four works from the Jerwood Collection join over 120 pieces drawn from 9 Sussex museum and gallery collections as well as major loans from across the country for Sussex Modernism: Retreat and Rebellion at Two Temple Place, London (28 January – 23 April 2017).
This major exhibition, curated by Dr Hope Wolf, examines why radical artists and writers were drawn to the rolling hills, seaside hills, seaside resorts, and quaint villages of Sussex in the first half of the 20th century and how, in the communities they created, artistic innovation ran hand in-hand with political, sexual and domestic experimentation.
Jerwood Collection has also loaned Dig for Victory 1940 by Sir Stanley Spencer RA (1891-1959) and Daphne Charlton (1909-1991) to An Artistic Affair: Stanley Spencer and Daphne Charlton which is currently on show at Stanley Spencer Gallery, Cookham until 1 October 2017. This exhibition focuses on a remarkable series of drawing and paintings by Spencer that were inspired by his affair with Daphne Charlton.
Jerwood Collection welcomes loan requests from galleries and museums. For loan requests please contact Lara Wardle (Jerwood Collection Curator) by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
