Date: May 2016 - July 2016

Location: Mottisfont House, Hampshire

   

Three drawings by David Breuer-Weil relating to his sculpture Alien are included in an exhibition of rarely seen works by some of Britain’s most famous twentieth-century artists at the National Trust’s Mottisfont in Hampshire.

Over 50 drawings and sketches will be displayed, alongside works from Mottisfont’s own collection. The Schlee Collection: Drawings from Henry Moore to David Hockney features works by artists including Graham Sutherland, Peter Lanyon, Stanley Spencer and Gillian Ayres. Louise Govier, Mottisfont’s curator of exhibitions, comments, ‘The breadth of work is wonderful. It really allows visitors to explore how and why artists make marks – to plan and be precise, to work out an idea, to express something deeply internal.’
