TERRY FROST & PATRICK HERON
7-30 June 2018
West Cornwall became an influential centre for modernist art in the mid-20th century. Among the pivotal artists to set up practise in the area were Patrick Heron and Sir Terry Frost – the stars of this exhibition.
Our selection of pictures will focus on the work of these masters of abstraction – characterised by dramatic blasts of light, shape and colour – in pictures inspired by landscape and sea.
This is art which thrives in vivid, luminous colour and whose popularity is enduring.
Celebrating Henri Matisse’s Jazz
Henri Matisse’s illustrations for Jazz recently celebrated their 60th birthday.
Join Dantzig as we mark this occasion with a dazzling display of the entire series of 20 works.
Our vibrant lithographs were commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art New York – and printed directly from the original 1947 pochoir plates.
Their colours are so luminous that Matisse’s doctor even advised their maker to wear sunglasses while working on them.
Come and find out why next Thursday evening – 26 April – from 7.30-9.30pm
The exhibition is open to the public from 27 April to 5 May and 8-17 May at Dantzig Gallery.
And on 6 May we will be presenting the pictures in a one day pop-up show at the 2018 Cheltenham Jazz Festival.
Please RSVP to [email protected] or phone 01993 812000 by 5pm on Thursday as this launch is expected to be extremely busy.
