A centenary exhibition of Keneth Rowntree's works in the De'Longhi Print Room in the Gallery.

About

Touring from the Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden, this exhibition marks the centenary of the birth of Kenneth Rowntree (1915 – 1997), one of Britain’s best loved artists, known for his works in oil and watercolour. A contemporary of Edward Bawden RA, Michael Rothenstein RA, and Eric Ravilious, with whom he became great friends, the influence of a generation of English artist-designers is evident in his remarkable range of work. Rowntree had a playful approach to depicting his surroundings, from the Essex countryside near the village of Great Bardfield where he lived from 1941, to the Welsh hills and Sussex coastline which he visited, and later to the Australian outback and great landscapes of America. The exhibition features oil, acrylic, watercolour and gouache paintings, along with drawings, prints and posters, spanning the 1930s – 1980s. The exhibition is accompanied by the publication of an illustrated book published by Moore-Gwyn Fine Art and Liss Llewellyn Fine Art.
