We’re pleased to announce details of our first Temporary Moorings exhibition, Imagination and Reality: the Art of Arthur Ransome, which will be taking place in partnership with The Brantwood Trust from 19 May to 5 September, 2011.
The exhibition will be in the Blue Gallery at Brantwood, John Ruskin’s former home on the east side of Coniston Water. It will explore Arthur Ransome’s approach to illustrating the landscapes and plots of the Swallows and Amazons novels through examples of his original sketches and artwork.
A programme of occasional public lectures and events will run alongside the exhibition, offering insights into many aspects of Arthur Ransome’s life.
