In View: Rebecca Salter at Gainsborough’s House – Sudbury 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.

The exhibition, organised in collaboration with the writer and art critic Thomas Marks, presents her practice in a curated selection of large-scale paintings on display in the Sudbury Gallery at Gainsborough’s House. Rooted in Japanese modes of thought and art making, the exhibition’s themes of Drawing to Painting, Repetition and Attention, Surface and Depth provide entry points into Salter’s careful, meditative mode of abstraction.
