A major new exhibition of work by Peter Brook, the famous Brighouse landscape artist, opens on Saturday, December 6, at the Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse.
This exhibition will showcase Peter’s work from the 1970s right up to 2009, the year he died.
It features his popular prints as well as very rare originals and signed limited edition prints. This is probably one of the last chances to see such a range of his work as most of his originals and signed prints are now in the hands of private collectors.
Peter Brook lived for most of his life in Brighouse and was a well-known figure around the town. Modest though he was and always ready for a chat with people he met on the street, he was in fact one of the UK’s top landscape artists. His work is in the Tate collection in London and many famous film stars own his work.
Steven Lord, proprietor of the Harrison Lord Gallery, said: “We are delighted to be able to hold this Peter Brook exhibition. He is still a much loved figure and the response to his work is always exceptional. Also, it’s great to hear people’s stories and reminiscences about him. Many people collect his work and this exhibition offers a rare chance to see a large display of his paintings.”
The free exhibition runs until December 24. Visit www.harrisonlord.co.uk.
