Denis Peploe: Centenary Exhibition
To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Denis Peploe we have put together a show of paintings, drawings and sculpture, demonstrating his full oeuvre.
While Peploe was intimately exposed to the mainstream of European art he remained better defined as an artist who responded directly to his subject, en plein air or in the studio. His work remained free of political or art-world referencesbut was at the same time formed by the century of modernism, the times of unprecedented turmoil and change to which he belonged. His response was to cleave to the idea that art was important, even redemptive and that it could somehow describe a better, or more vital place.
