8th July – 29th October 2023

Apart from the Great Bardfield Artists, after the end of World War II, north west Essex became the home for a later group of younger, more radical artists, embracing neo-romantic ideals.

These were Michael Ayrton, Robert Colquhoun, Robert MacBryde, and Keith Vaughan.  The Fry Art Gallery has good holdings of these artists, and are delighted that the Ingram Collection, with whom we collaborated last year in Woking, are lending further works by Ayrton and Vaughan as well as Graham Sutherland, John Craxton and John Minton.

The Ingram Collection is recognised as one of this country’s most significant, and publicly accessible, collections of Modern British Art.
