Looking Back at the Artist LS Lowry on His Birthday

2018-11-08T17:14:48+00:00

Most famous for his northern industrial landscapes and his matchstick people, LS Lowry has long been considered one of Britain’s favourite artists. However, where he was once seen as a naive and simplistic painter, the complexity and tonality of both the artist and his art now enjoy a newfound appreciation that has changed the way we view Lowry’s work.

Today, on what would have been his 130th birthday, we’re looking back at Lowry’s life, influences, and inspirations to find out just how those matchstick people came to life.

We Talk to Artist Paul Stephenson About his ‘After Warhol’ Exhibition and The Meaning of Authenticity

2018-06-22T13:11:28+00:00

After Warhol

“If you had the opportunity to work with Warhol’s original assistants and screen printer and use his original materials… What would you do?” This is the question Paul Stephenson asked after finding himself in the unique position to do just that; use the very bases and materials used by Warhol to create a piece using Warhol’s concepts and processes in exactly the way Warhol intended. Could the resulting artwork actually be considered an original ‘Warhol’?

It was the decision to follow this thought process through to its meticulous conclusion that led to the creation of ‘After Warhol’, an exhibition […]

Looking back at the Artist Sir Alfred Munnings on his Birthday

2018-06-22T13:18:48+00:00

139 years after his birth, Sir Alfred Munnings remains one of the world’s greatest equestrian artists. From cart horses and gypsy nags to war horses and famous stallions, these elegant animals defined Munnings’ career and arguably led him to a life of eventual fame and fortune.

To celebrate his birthday today, we’re looking back at Sir Alfred’s life and career, how he developed his bold and recognisable style, where he found his inspiration, and how he came to be known as Britain’s finest painter of horses.

130 years ago today, on July 7th 1887, Marc Chagall was born in the small city of Vitebsk, Belorussia.
