Roy Oxlade & David Bomberg

Roy Oxlade & David Bomberg  features a number of key works by David Bomberg  (1890 – 1957) showcasing two of his main themes: portraiture and landscape. Displayed alongside early paintings by Roy Oxlade (1929 – 2014), this exhibition shows the influence of Bomberg on Oxlade’s early artistic development. Two of Oxlade’s works on display were painted during the 1950s when Oxlade was a student  of Bomberg’s. Roy Oxlade and David Bomberg shared a number of key ideas in their distinct artistic practices. They both believed that objects  and places should be central to an artist’s approach, and shared a rejection of  traditional academic teaching. 

The gallery will be closed from 10th June - 6th July.
