Adrian Stokes
Acting as a link between Shimmering Substance and View Finder, this brief show is a rare opportunity to see the paintings of Adrian Stokes (1902-72), who was also a poet and one of the first writers in Britain to apply psychoanalytic theory in art criticism. The exhibition includes his British and continental landscapes and still lifes of glass bottles in muted, luminescent colours. It coincides with a Centenary Conference on Stokes’s work, held at the University of Bristol with support from the Faculty of Arts and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
