Albert Moore: Of Beauty and Aesthetics
York Art Gallery presents the first monographic exhibition of York born artist Albert Joseph Moore since the artist’s death in 1893.

Featuring more than 20 paintings and watercolours, it will highlight the beautiful and classical women for which the artist is most famous and demonstrate the modernity of Moore’s approach.

Albert Moore was one of the leading artists of the Aesthetic movement who prioritised mood, colour harmony and beauty of form over subject matter to create ‘art for art’s sake’. The exhibition will explore Albert Moore’s career and body of work using the latest research into his work by leading experts. It will include examples of Moore's youthful Pre-Raphaelite works as well as the hauntingly beautiful classical figures of his mature style.

Organised by York Museums Trust and Museum De Buitenplaats, in Eelde, Netherlands, the exhibition features the stunning and ambitious ‘Midsummer’, 1887, from the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery, Bournemouth alongside other key works from public and private collections across the UK.

The exhibition will run at the Museum De Buitenplaats from 10 December 2016 – 19 March 2017 before coming to York.

Picasso: Ceramics from the Attenborough Collection
Ceramic works of art by one of the world’s most famous artists, Pablo Picasso, go on public display at the Centre of Ceramic Art in York Art Gallery this summer. The new exhibition showcases highlights from the Attenborough collection.

Lord and Lady Attenborough began collecting ceramics by Picasso in 1954, after meeting him whilst on a family holiday in the South of France. At the time, Picasso was beginning to experiment with clay and produce his own ceramics at Georges and Suzanne Ramié’s Madoura Pottery in Vallauris. The Attenborough’s returned to Vallauris year after year, purchasing many more pieces and created the most significant private collections of Picasso ceramics in the UK.

The ceramics have been generously loaned to York Art Gallery by the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester, by kind permission of the Estate of Lord and Lady Attenborough.

Pieces in the exhibition were chosen to reflect the range of Picasso’s own artistic interests and also reveal the taste of the collectors, Richard and Sheila Attenborough.

Marinella Senatore: York Symphony
Through a series of workshops and conversations collecting individual stories in York, Italian artist Marinella Senatore has created a new Symphony which celebrates the city. Well-known in Europe and the US for her collaborative process of making new artworks through public participation, Senatore uses a range of media including video, collage and text to allow her projects to speak within a range of contexts.

This new Evelyn Commission is a contemporary response to the historic Evelyn Award, a scheme which ran from 1950 until 1962 with the aim of bringing York’s topographical collection up to date.

York Symphony is a commission produced in partnership with York Museums Trust, supported by a York family through the Friends of York Art Gallery.
