An exhibition exploring one of the Gallery's most significant donations, the George and Ann Dannatt Gift, which includes a largely unseen and newly conserved group of paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints by key figures associated with the St Ives Group of Artists in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, including Terry Frost, Roger Hilton, Peter Lanyon, Ben Nicholson, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and John Tunnard.

About

Marking the centenary of George Dannatt’s birth in 1915, this exhibition will explore one of the Gallery’s most significant donations, the George and Ann Dannatt Gift. The collection includes paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints by key figures associated with the St Ives Group of Artists such as Terry Frost, Roger Hilton, Peter Lanyon, Ben Nicholson and John Tunnard, as well as leading ‘Neo-Romantic’ artists such as Paul Nash, Robert Colquhoun, Robert MacBryde and Keith Vaughan. George Dannatt was himself an abstract artist and a selection of his own works will be on display.

The exhibition tours to the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester in Autumn 2015. A selling exhibition of George Dannatt's work at the Osborne Samuel Gallery will take place in London in September 2015, as well as an exhibition of St Ives and Dannatt's work at Southampton Art Gallery.
