29 June - 20 July 2022
Offer Waterman and Turnbull Studio present a major retrospective exhibition of William Turnbull (1922 - 2012) to celebrate the centenary of the artist’s birth.
One of Britain's most important post-war Modernists, Turnbull explored the changing contemporary world and its ancient past, actively engaging with the shifting concerns of British, European and American artists.
The exhibition at No.9 Cork Street is the most comprehensive exhibition of Turnbull's work since a major retrospective at the Tate Gallery in 1973. It brings together more than 60 paintings and sculptures from every period of the artist’s career as well as a small number of works on paper from the late 1940s. The majority of the works come directly from the estate, complemented by major loans from private collections to ensure a comprehensive presentation of the artist’s mastery of different mediums.
The exhibition coincides with the publication of William Turnbull: International Modern Artist, edited by Jon Wood, with a forword by Nicholas Serota.
