Eardley Knollys, Messum’s, 28 Cork Street, London W1, until 20th May 2016
Many of these works by Eardley Knollys (1902-1991) have not been seen before. He said of his work in an early exhibition catalogue “I have always loved strong, bright colours – muddy ones seem to me symbols of gloom. This led me to the Pont Aven and Fauve painters, and they remain my favourites… I try to drive along the splendid road they opened – in my own car of course and with some personal diversions.”
Now we have chance to once more enter his colourful, elegant world.
