Southampton City Art Gallery presents a major exhibition of paintings and drawings by Robert Polhill Bevan. This catalogue is published to accompany the exhibition, which explores Bevan’s artistic development and key influences. His most familiar subject, the horse, is prominent through examples of his cab-yard and London horse sale paintings. Bevan was one of the first to translate the styles of the Post-Impressionists Van Gogh, Gauguin and Cezanne into a distinctly English idiom. He was a founder member of the Camden Town Group and his studio in Cumberland Market, London gave its name to the small group of artists ( Robert Bevan, Harold Gilman, Charles Ginner and John Nash). Their artworks are surveyed through paintings, drawings and prints from public and private collections. This includes artworks held by the artist’s family that has never previously been published.
