22 October 2011 – 19 February 2012

The first major exhibition for 25 years of the highly individual work of the popular British artist Edward Burra (1905-1976). Through a selection of around 70 major works from across the artist's career, this exhibition features Burra’s iconic images of everyday people at leisure in bars and clubs, the black culture of 1930's Harlem, the sub-culture of harbours and ports, his macabre dancing skeletons and stunning late landscapes. The exhibition also explores the influence of jazz music and cinema, and his forays into the darker sides of humanity.
