John Craxton in Dorset

A new show has opened at the Museum in Dorchester of Craxton’s pictures of Dorset. I have lent a picture of the ruined Knowlton Church, inscribed by the artist to the opthalmic surgeon, Pat Trevor-Roper, brother of the academic Hugh. These early, pre-Greece pictures by the young artist are very much influenced by John Piper.
