People who have saved this event:


The Lightbox gallery and museum will present ‘John Minton and the Romantic Tradition’, a new exhibition marking the centenary commemoration of the birth of John Minton, showcased by works drawn from The Ingram Collection of Modern British Art.


The exhibition will explore the works of John Minton and his contemporaries in the Neo-Romantic movement of the 1930s and 1940s.

Reflecting on the effects of the Second World War, the Neo-Romantics were dealing with the psychological consequences felt across the country: destruction of homes and cities, emotional loss, and national feelings of paranoia and threat. Their paintings included intense and moody landscapes, lonely figures, and sombre, abstract British scenes.
