Alan Davie: A Diamond Romance
'A Diamond Romance' is the exhibition in Harrogate which is displaying a series of drawings and paintings from 1948-2012 of Alan Davie, the University's third Gregory Fellow in Painting.
Davie studied painting at the Edinburgh College of Art from 1938 to 1940, before travelling across Europe with his wife Bili in the late 1940s, by which time his work was considered to be ground-breaking.
He was invited to become one of the Universitys Gregory Fellows in Painting in 1957, with such Fellowships enabling artists, sculptors, poets and musicians to develop their skills at Leeds and serve as an inspiration to those around them.
Alan Davies work has been exhibited internationally for more than 65 years and his work is held in many of the worlds major public collections so this is a great opportunity to see some renowned work up close. The exhibition also includes a small group of drawings by Bili Davie during their travels to Europe, which help to form a record of their everyday domestic lives.
The exhibition will be on display until Saturday 20 October at 108 Fine Art in Harrogate.
