A remarkable collection of lost works by WW2 Official War Artist Evelyn Dunbar (1906 – 1960) goes on show for the first time, including highlights from an extraordinary hoard of previously unrecorded work discovered in the attic of a Kent Coast house.

This exhibition, in association with Liss Llewellyn Fine Art, is a rare chance to encounter such a large quantity of previously unseen work by an important 20th century artist. It is also in line with the Gallery’s continuing commitment to the reappraisal of overlooked Modern British artists.

The exhibition is accompanied by the publication of an illustrated book published by Liss Llewellyn Fine Art, with contributions by Gill Clarke, Andrew Lambirth, Alan Powers, Peyton Skipwith and Christopher Campbell-Howes.
