CAMBRIDGE  •  The Fitzwilliam Museum  •  Ongoing
The Fitzwilliam Museum is presents a retrospective on John Craxton (1922 - 2009) – from his beginnings as a young hope of post-war British art, creating dark, meditative images of the natural world, to works of light and colour from his later life in Crete. Arranged in the Fitzwilliam’s Mellon gallery the show features a carefully chosen selection of over sixty of Craxton's finest pictures illustrating the constant evolution of his painting. The exhibition also features personal photos reflecting Craxton’s many travels and friendships.
