‘Land, City & Sea’ Exhibition – last few days


‘Land, City & Sea: British Masters from the David Ross Collection’, currently on display at The Collection in Lincoln, is showing for a last few days. The popular exhibition brings together paintings, prints and sculptures from some of the most important artists working in the last sixty years.

The exhibition begins in the cities of the 1960s, with work by artists such as Patrick Caulfield, Allen Jones and David Hockney and moves into more recent decades including more painterly descriptions of urban and suburban landscapes by Leon Kossoff, Frank Auerbach, George Shaw and Jonathan Yeo. Works by Ged Quinn and Tony Bevan introduce unusual and slightly unnerving understandings of the countryside. The sea is explored through the moody modernism of Christopher Nevinson and Keith Vaughan, the sun-kissed world of Pop artists such as Gerald Laing and Derek Boshier, and the contemporary viewpoints of artists such as Susan Hiller, Celia Paul and Peter Doig. In contrast, work by Bridget Riley and Pauline Boty, alongside sculptures by Barbara Hepworth, explore how a sense of place can be conveyed through abstraction, illusion and minimalism.

David Ross, the entrepreneur and philanthropist best known for co-founding The Carphone Warehouse Group, has amassed a world-class collection of British art made within his lifetime.

The exhibition closes on 6th January 2019.
