Brighton-based Dennis Creffield (b.1931) was once described by the American artist R.B. Kitaj as ‘one of England's most closely guarded secrets'. A pupil of David Bomberg, Creffield studied at the Borough Polytechnic where he established his expressive approach to drawing. Later, he attended the Slade where he was a prize-winner, becoming a teacher himself and a substantial artist in his own right.

This exhibition showcases the artist's celebrated charcoal drawings of English medieval cathedrals which were commissioned in 1987 by the Arts Council, placing them alongside his later series of French counterparts for the first time.
