press release

Continuing our ongoing series of curated exhibitions devoted to the greatest British artists of the twentieth century, James Hyman Fine Art are delighted to be holding a major exhibition addressing one of the most exciting periods in twentieth century British art history, the dynamic years of change after the Second World War.

After the disruption of the Second World War, British artists, whether abstract or figurative, were involved in international attempts to rejuvenate art through expressive new languages of painting. The Challenge of Post-War Painting focuses on this key moment for twentieth century British art. A reassessment of this period, The Challenge of Post-War Painting presents some of the most important British art of the post-war years to address the relationship between abstraction and figuration and to explore the radicalism of post-war British art.
