Artist-Travellers 1850-1950

In the second half of the nineteenth century, exotic destinations beyond British shores became more easily accessible to the explorer, traveller, emigrant, and eventually to the tourist. Patrick Bourne & Co’s exhibition brings together work by artists who travelled on the Continent but also journeyed to North Africa, and to the Near and Far East.

Artists include Edwin Alexander, Frank Brangwyn, Frederick Lee Bridell, George Chinnery, Stanley Cursiter, Philip De Laszló, Sir Alfred East, Sir James Gunn, George Henry, E.A. Hornel, Henry Herbert La Thangue, Sir John Lavery, Edward Lear, Frederic, Lord Leighton, James Mcbey, Arthur Melville, Mortimer Menpes, Sir William Nicholson, Anne Redpath, Adrian Stokes and Marianne Stokes.
