A Crisis of Brilliance, 1908 - 1920


disabled access

Paul Nash, C.R.W. Nevinson, Stanley Spencer, Mark Gertler, Dora Carrington and David Bomberg became some of the most well-known and distinctive British artists of the twentieth century. While studying together at the Slade School of Art in London between 1908 and 1912, they formed part of what their esteemed drawing teacher Henry Tonks described as the school's last ‘crisis of brilliance'. As their talents evolved they became Futurists, Vorticists and ‘Bloomsberries', and befriended the leading writers and intellectuals of their day.

Curated by David Boyd Haycock, this exhibition will feature over 70 original works and explore the artists' development from their time as young students, to their mature works, culminating with a selection of their paintings made during and after the Great War which includes some of the most provoking visual records of that epochal event.
