Essence of Nature – Laing Art Gallery

May 27, 10:00 am - October 14, 4:30 pm

A woman in a white dress and red coat holds a basket. She looks over a small girl in a blue dress, who is crouching over some bushes. Fields and skies stretch to the horizon. This is a painting called Blackberrying by Harold C Harvey in 1917.

Take in a vast collection of works in this exhibition of landscape paintings.

Nature was captured differently by artists across the centuries, from the Pre-Raphaelites’ ideal of ‘truth to nature’, to the light and colourful paintings of the British Impressionists.

This exhibition is a celebration of nature in many forms. It features several loans, as well as pictures from the Laing’s extensive collection.
