"Patrick Heron: Garden Paintings"
2001-03-24 until 2001-06-03
Tate St. Ives
St. Ives, , UK United Kingdom

The spring exhibition at Tate St Ives will focus on paintings by Patrick Heron, inspired by the garden at his home near Zennor. Heron (1920-99) was one of Britains most important post-war painters and an extraordinary colourist. His spectacular garden, full of flowering azaleas and camellias growing amongst granite boulders, became a recurring subject in his work. Paintings from the 1950s will be shown contrasting Herons approach at that time with the later garden paintings of the early 1980s and 90s.

Heron was international in his outlook and in order to complement his exhibition a number of paintings by major figures of the modern movement will be displayed at Tate St Ives. These are the artists that he wrote about and include Monet, Bonnard, Picasso, Braque, Matisse, Vuillard, de Stael, Soulages and Tobey. This is the first time paintings by many of these artists have been shown at Tate St Ives.
