Julian Trevelyan: The Artist and His World (Exhibition) 6 October 2018 – 10 February 2019

Bolton Mills (Smaller)

The first comprehensive retrospective of the artist in over 20 years, the exhibition marks the 30th anniversary of the artist’s death and is co-curated by James Scott and Ariane Bankes.

A founding member of the British Surrealist Group, Julian Trevelyan (1910–1988) was at the centre of a defining moment in British 20thcentury art.  He was an original participant of the Mass Observation project and embraced a wide variety of styles from surrealism to realism and abstraction.

So why is he not better known?

Through over 100 paintings and prints this exhibition reaffirms Trevelyan’s significant contribution to British art. It celebrates his distinctive visual language which reflects an enduring appetite for experimentation.
