Neo-Romantics in Herefordshire
My attention has been drawn to a lovely -looking show in distant Herefordshire.
The Monnow Valley Arts Centre has a show of the collection of Nicolas and Frances McDowall. It consists of lots of super works by a range of good artists. The collectors clearly have a good eye. Some of the examples have been excellently chosen (for example the early work by Alan Reynolds). Their tastes overlap remarkably with my own and I have a number of pictures by the artists they represent. A particular connection is their showing of a 1953 landscape by Roy Turner Durrant (pretty well the only year he produced work of that type). I have about four of those from that year!
Well done to everyone involved and to whoever generated the catalogue.
