George Shaw: A Corner Of A Foreign Field
My favourite living painter – George Shaw – has a new exhibition – The Lost Of England – opening next month, but already there’s another one lined up for 2018. A Corner Of A Foreign Field will be a retrospective, his first since 2011’s The Sly And Unseen Day, to be held at the Yale Center For British Art in the USA. Featuring work for the past 20+ years, the emphasis will be on scenes from the Tile Hill estate he grew up on and will include some of my personal favourites. There’s no way I’ll be able to get there in person, so the best I can hope for is a lavish exhibition catalogue to add to my collection.
