2013 In Cloud Country

In Cloud Country: Abstracting from nature – from John Constable to Rachel Whiteread

This exhibition brought together works on paper created by artists from the 18th to the 21st centuries who have made studies of plants and of land, sea or skyscapes.

The display created a unique anthology that includes art, the abstract and the classic, and a collection of works that had never been displayed together.
