Prunella Clough @ Pallant House Gallery
12 October 2019 - 9 February 2020
This Centenary exhibition 1919 – 1999 traces Prunella Clough’s work from her early figurative depictions of dockworkers, fishermen, a lorry driver, as it evolves towards abstraction. The figures slowly disappear but Clough’s close observation of colour, texture and form remain constant throughout, as does her fascination with the human impact on landscape. It was this distinct visual language that marked her out as one of the 20th century’s most exceptional female artists.
Spanning six decades of her career, the exhibition draws upon the Gallery’s own notable holdings of paintings and prints and a number of significant, rarely-seen works loaned from private collections.
