Patrick Heron, Five Discs: 1963 1963. Private collection © Estate of Patrick Heron. All Rights Reserved, DACS 2018

Celebrate one of Britain’s most acclaimed artists in this major retrospective of his work

The exhibition will stretch from Heron’s early work in the 1940s to his death at the very end of the 20th century, showing the full evolution of his vibrant abstract paintings.

Making use of the gallery’s new building, the show will include a number of large-scale paintings offering visitors a unique opportunity to explore this modern master’s sense of scale, colour and composition.

With thanks to the Patrick Heron Exhibition Supporters Group.

The exhibition will tour to Turner Contemporary, Margate from 19 October 2018 - 6 January 2019.
