10 May – 13 June 2010 (De'Longhi Print Room)
To celebrate the centenary of his birth, Pallant House Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of prints by the renowned British painter and printmaker Julian Trevelyan (1910-1988).
Described as the ‘quiet driving force behind the etching revolution of the 1960s', as a tutor at the Royal College of Art, Trevelyan inspired a generation of post-war British artists to explore the potential of printmaking including R.B. Kitaj and David Hockney.
Featuring prints drawn from throughout his working life, this exhibition in the De' Longhi Print Room reflects Trevelyan's key influences such as Surrealism, abstraction, his interests in rural and industrial landscapes and displays his keen sense of humour and innocence of eye that could discover enchantment in the most mundane scenes.
