Summer Rays

Gertrude Hermes, Starlings, 1965 Gertrude Hermes was widely and justly recognised in her lifetime primarily for her sculpture; but for the cognoscenti, her drawings, wood-engravings and linocuts, which she made alongside the sculptures, are of an originality, ambition and sensitivity that confirm her status as an artist of national importance. This exhibition includes the last available drawings from her estate and in most cases the wood-engravings and linocuts are the last available copies.
