Jerwood Collection: Coast

The current Jerwood Collection display in Room 2 revisits Coast, Jerwood Gallery’s exhibition at the London Art Fair in January 2016.

Works featured in this exhibition including paintings by Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, John Piper, John Tunnard and Christopher Wood, were chosen for their particular connection with the British coastline.

Coastal locations have always held a particular fascination for artists, whether as inspiration or subject matter or as places where groups of artists have gathered together and shared a common sensibility. 

A further selection of Jerwood Collection works which explore the coastal theme will be hung in part of Room 3 from Wednesday 12 May - Sunday 9 October.

Jerwood Gallery was the Museum Partner for London Art Fair 2016 at the Business Design Centre, Islington.
