New exhibition of work by Pennine landscape painter Peter Brook. Also showcasing work by Leeds artist Robert Dutton

About

A major new exhibition of work by Peter Brook, the famous local landscape artist, opens on Saturday 21st November at the Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse.

This exhibition will showcase Peter’s work from the 1970s right up to 2009, the year he died. It features his popular prints as well as very rare originals and signed limited edition prints. Peter’s work continues to be extremely popular with collectors and values have continued to rise over the last year.

Peter Brook, of course, lived for most of his life in Brighouse and was a well-known figure around the town. Modest though he was and always ready for a chat with people he met on the street, he was in fact one of the UK’s top landscape artists. His work is in the Tate collection in London and many famous film stars own his work.

The Pennines were the inspiration for his paintings and his unique style and characteristic humour have made him a firm favourite over the years. Peter often used to walk with his great friend, Pennine photographer Richard Littlewood. Richard accompanied Peter into our local Pennine scenery to photograph and draw the old abandoned farms and the windswept landscapes that were their favourite haunts. In more recent times Richard has teamed up with another local artist, Robert Dutton, for his explorations of the Pennines. This friendship has borne fruit with some wonderfully evocative paintings by Robert which will be on display alongside Peter Brook’s work at the exhibition.

Steven Lord, proprietor of The Harrison Lord Gallery, said “We are delighted to be able to hold a Peter Brook exhibition once again. He is still a much loved figure and the response to his work is always exceptional. Also, it is with great pleasure, that we are also showcasing the work of Robert Dutton. Robert’s connections with Peter Brook via their mutual friend Richard Littlewood make for a really special exhibition. Robert has been inspired by the same views that Peter loved so much and it will be great to hear people’s reactions to his work.”

The free exhibition runs until December 24th. Ring 01484 722462 or see www.harrisonlord.co.uk for more details.
