20 October 2017 – 17 February 2018
Curated by Abbot Hall Art Gallery, LAND | SEA | LIFE is exhibition of works on loan from The Ingram Collection, which is recognised as one of this Country’s most significant collections of Modern British Art.
See 70 works by over 40 leading artists including Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Graham Sutherland and Laura Knight in this fascinating collection. The show also features a number of works by Edward Burra (1905-1976), an English artist who has not previously been exhibited at Abbot Hall Art Gallery.
Throughout the exhibition recurring themes in the work of British artists of the twentieth century are explored, emphasising trends in subject matter including still life, the human figure, landscape and abstraction. Alongside these themes, the exhibition investigates the notion of collecting, comparing the personal motives of Chris Ingram with the Gallery Collection and exploring why we collect? Visitors are invited to share their own collections and motivations for collecting, populating a wall of contributions as part of the exhibition.
