Exeter’s Fine Art Collection: Women Artists

8 December 2018 to 9 June 2019

Shining a spotlight on women artists in RAMM’s fine art collection, this exhibition features works from the 1770s until 2011.

Works include the suffragette artist Olive Wharry (1886-1947) and her views of Exeter after the blitz. Included also are works by the popular Victorian children’s book illustrator Kate Greenaway and detailed watercolour studies of birds and insects by Miss Ann Lee painted in the 1770s.

A key painting in this exhibition will be In Sight – Lord Dundonald’s Dash on Ladysmith by the artist Lucy Kemp-Welch (1869-1958), who in the 1890s had the well-deserved reputation as the most gifted painter of the horse the century had ever seen. This work will be on public display for the first time in decades following a successful fundraising appeal for its conservation.

There are also modern works by Barbara Hepworth, Gillian Ayres, Mary Martin, Dame Laura Knight, Primrose Pitman and Judith Ackland, amongst others.
