Wilhelmina Barns-Graham ‘The Joy of Colour: The Late Paintings & Prints’
“Letting rip” is how Wilhelmina Barns-Graham described making her late work, with colour defining these energetic paintings and prints. As a founding member of the St Ives group, Barns-Graham is acclaimed foremost as a British Modernist, shaping the development of 20th Century British art together with Terry Frost, Barbara Hepworth and Christopher Wood. However, it was her late work which immediately connected with an even wider audience, who relished the ‘joie de vivre’, colour and energy created by the artist in the last decade of her life. These late paintings have become highly prized amongst Modern British collectors today and Bohun Gallery’s major exhibition marks a unique opportunity for these enthusiasts, with some of the finest images created by Barns-Graham during this richly creative decade.
