The early works of an underrated icon
This is your chance to see a master up close. Twelve years after his death, Adrian Berg is finally honoured with the first major exhibition of his works on paper. Berg remains one of the most influential and innovative British landscape painters of his generation – and somehow one of the least recognised.
Born in London in 1929, Berg studied art at the likes of Central St. Martins and the Royal College of Art. It was there, at the RCA in the early-mid 1960s, that Berg was noticed as an artist of rare talent and vision, becoming a prominent influence on today’s well-known artists like David Hockney and R.B Kitaj.
Later in life, Beg dedicated much of his career to education – serving as a tutor and painting at London art schools across the capital.
This exhibition focuses on what Berg was most famous for – the vibrant sketches and water colours inspired by the parklands, gardens and coastlines he came across throughout his life.
Berg’s paintings have been exhibited in all major UK institutions, including the Tate, Hayward Gallery, V&A Museum, Royal Academy and many more.
The exhibition has only a few days left, so go check it out while you can.
Gallery opening times:
Tuesday to Friday: 11am - 6pm
Saturday: Midday - 4pm
