Art Exhibition tour to Broadway and Compton Verney

Date(s) - 19th Apr 2018

Broadway Museum


Hiroshige’s Japan – Views of Mount Fuji
Eric Ravilious & Co – The Pattern of Friendship + Created in Conflict British Soldier Art

Tudor House on the broad main street in Broadway is home to a Museum and Art Gallery which tells the story of travel and trade in Broadway and the Cotswolds through its unique collections carefully curated by the Ashmolean Oxford. We’ll also enjoy their Hiroshige exhibition. Hiroshige’s impact on European art was immense: many Impressionist artists fell under his spell, including Manet, Degas and Monet, who covered the walls of his house in Giverny with more than 200 Japanese woodcuts.

After free time in Broadway we’ll travel to Compton Verney to view their latest art exhibitions which include Ravilious & Co: The Pattern of Friendship. This exhibition is based on new research and tells a story that has never been told before. It explores the significant relationships and working collaborations between Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) and an important group of friends and affiliates, including Paul and John Nash, Enid Marx, Barnett Freedman, Tirzah Garwood, Edward Bawden, Thomas Hennell, Douglas Percy Bliss, Peggy Angus, Helen Binyon, and Diana Low. We will also have the opportunity to see the exhibition, Created in Conflict: British Soldier Art from the Crimean War to Today.
