Landscapes past and present at the Mall Galleries, London

For those that may be interested... from the Mall Galleries...


There may be snow on the ground outside, but inside the Mall Galleries you can bask in the warm Mediterranean glow of a collection of Dutch Italianate paintings on loan from Dulwich Picture Gallery.
Shown in The Threadneedle Space, they are hung alongside contemporary works by painters, photographers and film-makers inspired by these seventeenth century works.

Memory & Imagination: Dutch Italianate and Contemporary Landscapes opens tomorrow and is on until 1 March.

In the Main Gallery, the Federation of British Artists presents an exhibition of the landscapes of modern Britain. From the hard lines of inner cities to the flurries of green hills, a selection of artists capture views from across the country. The British Scene explores what makes Britain so recognisable that we can call each image home.

The British Scene opens on Thursday and is on until 16 February (closing 1pm on the final day).


31 January, 6.30pm
Join us for a tour of the exhibition and a talk on the theme of The Pastoral Ideal: Fact or Fiction? Explore why poetic landscape painting remains so popular today and investigate the ways that contemporary artists re-work traditional countryside imagery.


Wednesday 20 February, drop-in between 11am and 3pm
Fantasy Journeys Through the Landscape is a free half-term activity for families, students and young people. Get inspired by the imaginary landscapes of the Dutch Italianates or by Emily Allchuch’s surreal Worldscape and create your own.
