Drawing Through... The Ingram Collection of Modern British and contemporary Art

Curated exhibition for RWA, 2015.

 

Drawing On… turned the spotlight on Modern British Art, showcasing over fifty works from the extensive Ingram Collection of Modern British and contemporary Art. The work selected covered a wide range of techniques and styles, considering drawing in its widest possible sense, including sculptural studies, figurative sketches and coloured landscapes; some highly worked, others scribbled and fragmented. Presented across two galleries, it featured works by Edward Burra, Cecil Collins, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Mary Fedden, Elisabeth Frink, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney, Keith Vaughan, Henry Moore, John Nash, Ceri Richards and Stanley Spencer, amongst many more.
