John Craxton: A Modern Odyssey

Oct 28, 2023 Apr 21, 2024

John Craxton (schooled and part-brought up in rural Sussex) was inseparable from fellow Goldsmith’s student Lucian Freud in the mid-1940s, and he was, if anything, more successful than his friend during his early career. But after he discovered the pleasures of Greece – where he lived more on than off for the rest of his life – their friendship waned and with it his artistic reputation. In recent years his work has undergone something of a reappraisal, and this exhibition, featuring over 100 Craxton works, including paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics, set and book-jacket designs, will help raise his profile even further.
