This summer, Jerwood Gallery will explore Wilhelmina Barns-Graham’s faithful depiction of landscape and inherent understanding of nature through four decades of her work in its new exhibition, Sea, Rock, Earth and Ice.


Even as a child, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004) had determined to become an artist. In defiance of her father’s wishes, she enrolled at Edinburgh College of Art in 1931, graduated six years later (following bouts of illness) and moved to Cornwall.

Wilhelmina Barns-Graham: Sea, Rock, Earth and Ice forms part of Jerwood Gallery’s In Focus series, in which the context of a work from the Jerwood Collection is explored in a focused exhibition, curated by Lara Wardle, Director of Jerwood Collection.

Thus the Collection’s Winter Landscape 1952 will be displayed together with loans from the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Charitable Trust and key pieces from other national collections. The works will also be accompanied by archive material on loan from the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Charitable Trust.
