New John Craxton Exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge

We highly recommend a visit to A World of Private Mystery, the new John Craxton, RA (1922-2009) retrospective, which opened at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge yesterday and runs until 21 April 2014.  The show is packed with atmospheric works from throughout Craxton’s life, including little-seen drawings. 

Sir David Attenborough, who opened the exhibition, talks to Ian Collins, co-curator and author of the only monograph on Craxton.

If you can’t make the trip this time, why not take a look at co-curator Ian Collins’s authoritative monograph on the artist?
