British Neo-Romantic Art in South Wales
Having had the immense privilege to see France and Nicolas McDowall's art collection 'in situ' as it were, over the years, I am thrilled to bits to hear that a large selection of their assiduous, forty-year in the making, collection of British Neo-Romantic art is to be exhibited. It was, in fact, only after encountering and spending time with this collection and the careful and quiet thoughts of Frances and Nicolas that I even knew there was something called Neo-Romantic art!
If you are anywhere close to South Wales in the next couple of months it will surely be a must see exhibition. There is to be a catalogue too, 74pp, heavily illustrated and with words by the lovely Dr Peter Wakelin and very reasonably priced from the Monnow Arts Centre.
