Circles and Tangents - Art in the shadow of Cranborne Chase
Circles and Tangents brings together a unique collection of paintings and sculpture made by artists who, from the 1920s to the present day, have found in Cranborne Chase a landscape of inspiration, seclusion and âbare-boned' beauty.
Items in the exhibition have been drawn from a variety of sources, many from private collections, and range from early neo-romantic works to contemporary pieces made specifically for this exhibition.
Artists include the Nicholson family (William, Ben, Winifred, E.Q. and Tim), John Craxton, Lucian Freud, Stanley Spencer, Augustus John, Henry Lamb, Frances Hodgkins, Katharine Church (Kitty West), Peter Thursby and Elisabeth Frink. Contemporary artists include Ursula Leach, Brian Rice, John Hitchens, Jay Battle, Tim Harrisson and Ian Middleton. An accompanying book by Vivienne Light will be available at the Museum.
