The F.E. McWilliam Gallery and Studio in Banbridge unveiled a brand new and exclusive arts collection on Saturday past, titled Drawn from Life: People on Paper, which includes work from various internationally celebrated artists like David Hockey, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Lucien Freud. The exhibition which captivated visitors across England in recent months, reveals some of the most exceptional and interesting masterworks from the Arts Council Collection in London. The collection of figurative drawings feature Gwen John’s delicate lines alongside the intricate patterns of Harold Gilman, whilst the imaginary figures of Charles Avery and Mimei Thompson brings a modern twist to this magnificent collection.
