Irises, etc. RECENT PAINTINGS AND WATERCOLOURS BY DERRICK GREAVES 03 Nov — 24 Nov / 10.00am - 5.00pm


Derrick Greaves is one of the most important British painters of the last half-century. Greaves initially gained acclaim in the 1950s, when he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale along with the other ‘Kitchen-Sink’ painters with whom he was associated: John Bratby, Edward Middleditch and Jack Smith.

His work has developed from the social realism of the 1950s to a more heraldic style that paralleled 1960s Pop Art, from an imagery based on nature and observable fact to more studio-bound imaginative constructs.
