Abstract Britain: From Hepworth to Hodgkin

Orange and Red, 1957
25 April – 27 September 2015

Drawn entirely from the Cecil Higgins Collection, Abstract Britain charts Britain’s journey into abstraction. This exhibition features work from the artists of St Ives, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Peter Lanyon, the post-war experimenters, William Scott and Victor Pasmore, the geometric abstraction of Bridget Riley and the emotionally figurative work of Howard Hodgkin. The exhibition looks at the different paths British artists have taken to non-figurative representation.

The exhibition includes several of William Scott’s works including Orange and Red, 1957.
