Anthony Fry: A Retrospective


£10/£9 concs/£5 Art Fund/ Free to all Museum Members & under 18s (Under 12s must be accompanied by an adult).


We are delighted to be showing the first museum retrospective of the painter Anthony Fry (1927-2016), who enjoyed huge commercial success in Britain and America during his lifetime but has not previously been recognised by a major exhibition. Comprising works lent from prestigious private collections, the show reveals the considerable extent of his talent.

Fry was an artist who lived and worked near Bath for sixty years but who made pictures that expressed his principal inspiration of travel. His early work, dominated by dancing figures, reflects the landscape of Tuscany. From the late 1980s his painting is characterised by strong, intense colour, influenced by the landscapes and culture of India, Morocco and the Sahara Desert, and Andalucía.

The Linbury Trust, The Monument Trust and Browse & Darby
