Graham Sutherland, Study for Folded Hills, (oil on canvas 1943), pencil, crayon, ink, chalk and charcoal.
Sutherland first visited Pembrokeshire in 1935 and inspired by the surrounding countryside he began to paint landscapes that were inspired by the inherent strangeness of natural forms with echoes of Blake and Palmer.
This piece was completed when Sutherland was in the midst of serving as an official British war artist. The sense of entrapment and claustrophobia prevalent in the war drawings is imposed upon the Pembrokeshire landscape; tightly packed hills compressed into folded forms, blackened gorse and menacing rock formations.
Sutherland's work at once encompasses English Neo-Romanticism with the analytical world of man's inner life
George Chapman. Work and Pleasure.
Chapman was born in London and studied art in Gravesend before attending the RCA and the Slade School. Influenced by Sickert and the Euston Road School of painters, in 1951 he moved to Great Bardfield where he became part of the artistic community alongside Edward Bawden and Michael Rothenstein. The following year he visited Wales for the first time and the country became a lifelong inspiration.
Chapman won the Gold Medal for painting at the Royal Eisteddfod of Wales in 1957 but became disillusioned with his painting and produced almost no work for twelve years from 1969. Revival of interest in Chapman’s work culminated in a major retrospective here at Goldmark Gallery in 1992, and his work is well represented in public collections including the National Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
