Many modern artists have depicted the landscape. They have sought to capture atmosphere and emotional response as well as trying to describe the topography of the land.

This exhibition brings together modern landscape paintings by Paul Nash, Christopher Nevinson, Roger Fry and Mary Fedden. It also explores more experimental approaches to depicting the landscape by Richard Long, Kathy Pendergast and Joe Tilson. The exhibition includes a number of works depicting Swindon and Wiltshire by Edward Buttar, David Rolt and Michael Cullimore.

Swindon Museum and Art Gallery can offer interesting and interactive tours of this exhibition for groups, colleges, universities and schools on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please contact us for more information at smag@swindon.gov.uk
