Carlos Nadal: Paintings in Yorkshire collections 7 June - 20 August 2011

Published 07 June 2011

Paintings in Yorkshire collections by the Expressionist Catalan painter Carlos Nadal (1917-1998), sometimes referred to as "the last of the Fauves".

The Gallery at the University of Leeds brings together over 40 paintings and drawings in Yorkshire collections for this seminal exhibition. A range of his favourite subjects are selected, from rolling green landscapes, lively beach scenes, bold still life and figure studies, or ornate civic buildings - all executed in his characteristically vibrant colours, wild brushstrokes and naïve style.

Running from 20 June to 13 August 2011, the exhibition is complemented by a special display about Carlos Nadal's life and art, showcasing works on paper, photographs, and archival documents in the Education Room.
