Celebrating 350 Years of British Art: An Exhibition

This autumn, Tennants are privileged to bring together a fascinating and diverse collection of paintings and sculpture, showcasing 350 Years of British Art.

From the early 18th Century British Art flourished, evolving from idyllic pastoral landscapes and dynastic portraiture through to the great Romantics of the 19th century and on to the revolutionary Modern British Art movement of the early 20th century. The extraordinary breadth of art produced on our shores has helped shape the visual culture of the western world.

As the largest family owned auction house in the United Kingdom, Tennants have had the pleasure of handling many extraordinary pieces of British art over the years, by the likes of JMW Turner, Edward Seago, Dame Laura Knight and Graham Sutherland. With a diverse range of pictures from the 17th century to the present day being sold in specialist Fine Art, Modern and Contemporary Art and Country House sales throughout the year, strong results are reliably achieved. 

Working in collaboration with public galleries and private collections, Tennants have curated an exhibition comprising a select group of works spanning 350 years, charting the development of British Art. Artists represented will include Thomas Gainsborough, George Romney, Henry Moore, L S Lowry and Sir Terry Frost, and many of the works have never been on view to the public before.

This non-selling exhibition will be open to visitors, free of charge on Thursday 30 November & Friday 1 December. Numbers will be strictly limited, so it is essential to book a 1 hour time slot for your visit. A catalogue of the exhibition will be available to purchase in the Gift Shop.
