Art - George Shaw: My Back to Nature at The Collection
4th November until 14th January - Lincoln LN2 1LP
Turner Prize nominee George Shaw brings his collection, organised by the National Gallery London, to Lincoln. View a series of over 50 new paintings and drawings made by the artist that coincide 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest. The My Back To Nature collection is inspired by woodland scenes in the National Gallery’s collection, that resonate with the artist’s experience of walking in the forest near his hometown as a teenager. This exhibition is accompanied by the loan of two of the works that inspired Shaw during his residency, a rare opportunity to view works by Piero del Pollaiuolo and Nicolas Poussin outside of London.
