All of the artists on display have attained new levels in art as a result of overcoming their own personal challenges. Indeed, they are the catalyst for their genius, enriching and energising their work.
The exhibition looks at inspiring examples from the 18th century through to the present day and will feature works including Henri Matisse, Anne Killigrew, Thomas Luny, Nerys Johnson, Tom Early, Bryan Pearce, Patrick Woodroffe and Edward Lear.
Luny, Thomas (1759-1837): Rodney's Victory off Cape St Vincent, signed, oil on canvas, 53 x 84 cms. Presented by Alfred A. de Pass.
