Rethinking the form, texture and space of the natural landscape


This exhibition looks back at a period of intense experimentation in British painting and sculpture where artists, having suffered the devastation of the war, turned their attention to the natural environment. Rather than approaching the landscape as scenery, the artists presented here wished to capture the sensation of being within the landscape. 

Drawn exclusively from the Whitworth’s collection of modern art, the exhibition features work by Terry Frost, Barbara Hepworth, Roger Hilton, Peter Lanyon, John Milne, Ben Nicholson, John Piper and Bryan Wynter.
