Drawn from Life

Overview

‘Drawn from Life: People on Paper’ is an Arts Council Collection touring exhibition which spans over a century of British art and brings together drawings by some of Britain’s most celebrated artists including works by David Hockney, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Lucian Freud, Antony Gormley and L.S. Lowry.

It begins in the early twentieth century with Gwen John’s delicate lines, the intricate patterns of Harold Gilman and the precision of William Roberts. Mid-twentieth-century works include the whimsical lines of George Fullard and John Golding and the bold markings of Frank Auerbach and John Bratby.

The majority are drawn from observation, though some are from memory or imagination; some are unfinished studies while others are finished works in their own right. Perhaps some of the most surprising examples are those from very early on in artists’ careers, such as a self-portrait by Richard Hamilton from 1938 and Eduardo Paolozzi’s Drawings from Rembrandt, 1945. The story is brought up to the present with the imaginary figures of Charles Avery and Mimei Thompson.

In partnership with Berwick Educational Association we have a programme of guided tours, lectures, drop-in family workshops and practical art workshops running throughout the exhibition, full details of the programme can be found here.
