John Copley: An Observer6 Dec 2016 - 5 Jan 2017 The prolific printmaker John Copley (1875-1950), already established as a lithographer, turned to etching in 1917. For the last 20 years of his life it was his preferred medium. Copley, at a time when etching had become unfashionable, enjoyed the lack of constraints and freedom of utterance etching permitted, as well as the energy and linearity of the medium, in comparison to lithograph’s more ‘painterly’ nature. This exhibition focuses on his etchings, rarely exhibited during his lifetime and seldom editioned. Examples of Copley’s figure studies, portraits, Mediterranean scenes and landscapes are included. Also his later work, more existential and emotional, and perhaps more introspective, from 1939 and throughout the 1940s. Copley’s oddity of vision combines a highly personal approach to the human body and situations, with a taste for the unglamorous and bizarre, sometimes expressed with a sardonic air. The work of this unclassifiable and truly modern artist deserves to be discovered, and kept alive. Ethel Gabain. Giorgio de Chirico. Egon Schiele. Neo-romanticism. Keith Vaughan. Carel Weight.

British Design6 Dec 2016 - 5 Jan 2017 The Fine Art Society is delighted to present its penultimate 140th anniversary exhibition this year, British Design. This follows on from the successful series of exhibitions dedicated to the John Scott Collection of Decorative art and design, held at the gallery over the last two years. This exhibition also inscribes itself in the gallery’s long established tradition of promoting the work of British designers, starting with E.W. Godwin, whose scheme for the front of the gallery dating from 1881 survives more or less unaltered today.
Dedicated to those British designers and architects who have shaped the evolution of design from the 19th century to the 1940s in England and beyond, the exhibition will present furniture, fabric, glass, metal and ceramic designs by the following designers and manufacturers,
A.W. Pugin, John Hardman, Alfred Waterhouse, John Pollard Seddon, Edward Godwin, Thomas Jeckyll, Howard & Sons, Arthur Heygate Mackmurdo, Robert Wallace Martin, George Jack, Christopher Dresser, Charles Robert Ashbee, Charles Edward Horton, Edwi Charles Purdie, William de Morgan, Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott, C.F.A.
