Curated by Ian Collins, Craxton’s art executor, the exhibition tells the story of this exciting artist, a friend of Freud, whose work developed from the dark, brooding paintings and drawings he created during the war period on Cranborne Chase to the bright works that celebrated his love of Crete and the way of life there. It is a revelatory and well-deserved remembrance of a talented and characterful artist.
