Spring 2015 sees three works from The Ingram Collection going out on loan to major new exhibitions showcasing the works of Edward Burra, Eric Ravilious and Barbara Hepworth.

Edward Burra’s Ropes and Lorries features in the latest ‘In Focus’ exhibition at the Jerwood Gallery, Hastings. Edward Burra: A Rye View (26 Feburary – 7 June) brings together a group of works connected to the East Sussex coastline where Burra grew up. Recently shown in our own Impact of War exhibition, Ropes and Lorries was painted in 1942-3 and is based on Burra’s observations of the garrisons stationed near his home town of Rye.

We are loaning a rather more peaceful view of Rye to the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s forthcoming exhibition, Ravilious (1 April – 31 August). Painted in 1938, Rye Harbour dates from what was possibly Ravilious’ most accomplished period, and we are delighted that it will be part of the first major survey of his watercolours.

This year the Hepworth Wakefield is devoting two exhibitions to both the earliest, and the latest, periods of Hepworth’s career. The Ingram Collection’s Construction I (1965) will be shown as part of A Greater Freedom: Hepworth 1965 – 1975 (18 April 2015 – April 2016), a survey of sculpture and drawings from Hepworth’s extremely prolific last decade.
