The exhibition is drawn from two collections that complement one another: The Ingram and Fleming Collections. The Ingram Collection is now recognised as one of this country’s most significant, and publicly accessible, collections of Modern British Art and the Fleming Collection is considered the finest collection of Scottish art outside public institutions.

It will feature works by Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious, two artists who around 1931 discovered the area and were inspired by the beauty of the Essex farmland, woodland, winding lanes, and open skies. They were joined in 1933 by John Aldridge. The exhibition will also explore the work of a second wave of artists such as Michael Rothenstein, George Chapman, and Walter Hoyle, and the seminal Open House exhibitions which the artists organised during the 1950s.

This was a pivotal moment in the artist's work that captured the spirit of the emergent 1960s and established his reputation at the forefront of British art of the time. In Crozier’s response to the natural environment, he developed an innovative vocabulary of abstract gestures and marks, informed by European and American abstract painting. Like an archaeologist, Crozier uncovered ‘the savagery just beneath the surface’ of the natural world, rather than representing its topographical appearance. In Crozier's paintings, nature observed provides the catalyst for a radical vision that gives us landscapes of dark revelation.
