An exciting exhibition at Alan Wheatley Art of important early oil paintings by one of the most influential Modern British living artists, Alan Davie.
Alan Davie (born in 1920, Grangemouth, Scotland) is one of Britain's most internationally acclaimed artists of the post-war era. Distinguished by spontaneity, exuberant colour and improvisation, Davie's work has been shown frequently for the last 65 years.
This important exhibition at Alan Wheatley Art features oil paintings from the first two decades of the artist's oeuvre and it will provide the opportunity to view previously unseen significant early works by the artist.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated major new publication, with an essay by Douglas Hall.
