Circles and Tangents: Art in the Shadow of Cranborne Chase

Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum: 25 May-29 September 2012


Circles and Tangents: Art in the Shadow of Cranborne Chase presented a visual account of artists’ networks and circles associated with one exceptional and historic geographic area of England. This exhibition brought together a unique collection of paintings and sculpture made by artists who, from the 1920s to the present, found in Cranborne Chase and its hinterland a landscape of inspiration, seclusion and ‘bare-boned' beauty. 

Artists in the exhibition included Elizabeth Frink, the Nicholson family (William, Ben, Winifred and E.Q.), John Craxton, Lucian Freud, Augustus John, Henry Lamb, Frances Hodgkins and Katharine Church (Kitty West) as well as less familiar names.
