The Age Of Turmoil: Burra, Spencer, Sutherland

About

The Age of Turmoil features work by three ground-breaking Modern British artists: Edward Burra (1905-1976), Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) and Graham Sutherland (1903-1980). Painted between the mid-1930s to the late 1950s, the works all share a sense of the anxiety, discomfort and fear that many people felt during this turbulent historical period. Both Spencer and Sutherland were war artists, drawing heavily from their experiences, and while Burra's severe rheumatoid arthritis meant that he was unable to serve in the war, his hometown of Rye became a centre for military activity and inspired the treeless landscapes and sinister, uniformed figures of this period.
