In View: Rebecca Salter at Gainsborough’s House – David Pike Drawing Gallery

November 11, 2023March 10, 2024


The first solo museum show in the UK dedicated to the work of the British abstract artist Rebecca Salter, President of the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and by association, President of Gainsborough’s House.

Having formally studied traditional Japanese woodblock printing in Kyoto for six years, Rebecca Salter, the first woman President of the Royal Academy, is renowned as a painter whose work combines Western and Eastern traditions.

In the historic building at Gainsborough’s House, Rebecca Salter couples her ink drawings and watercolours, as well as one sculpture, with twelve works from the museum’s collection, by Gainsborough, Cedric Morris and Rembrandt, among others. Each pairing generates fresh insight into the historical work while opening up perspectives on Salter’s own experimental processes.
