The Neo-Romantics were inspired by nineteenth century Romantic visionaries such as William Blake and Samuel Palmer as well as by continental developments in art. While emotionally drawn to and rooted in landscape painting and poetic literature, their work was shaped by the unrest associated with the Second World War and the period of unease that followed. We commemorate the 100th anniversary of Minton’s birth in an exhibition that explores his work along with several of his Neo-Romantic contemporaries – Graham Sutherland, Michael Ayrton, John Craxton, John Piper, and Keith Vaughan.
