Impressionists in London - Tate Britain

October 30, 2017

The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London – French Artists in Exile 1870–1904 is the first exhibition to map the connections between French and British artists, patrons and art dealers during a traumatic period in French history. Highlighting their engagement with British culture, traditions and social life, their art is a fascinating insight into how London was perceived by the visiting French artists and the remarkable works that came from their time here including Monet, Tissot, Pissarro and their compatriots including Dalou, Sisley, Derain and Legros.

 

As Tate Britain unveils this remarkable exhibition, we are delighted to present a new series of paintings by contemporary Cornish artist Geoff Uglow that captures the spirit of the Impressionist movement and its fascination with the effects of light in nature. Much like Monet and later french artists such as Henri Martin and Henri Le Sidaner, Uglow has an innate and deeply personal connection to the natural world. Over a period of ten years he has nurtured an idyll in the depths of rural Cornwall with over three hundred varieties of roses collected from his travels across Scotland and Italy. In this new body of work, Uglow's vibrant palette and rich surface of paint is directly inspired by the rose garden that now entwines his home and studio.
