Peter Prendergast was one of Britain’s leading landscape painters. Inspired by the surroundings of his Snowdonia home, his bold expressionist paintings are noted for their vigour and energy.
Peter was born in Abertridwr, South Wales in 1946 and trained at Cardiff College of Art and the Slade School of Art, where he was taught by Frank Auerbach. He lived and worked near Bangor, North Wales from 1970 up to his death in 2007. He was fiercely proud of his Welsh heritage. Yet while his commitment to Wales and its spectacular scenery is clear, Prendergast’s work, and its appeal, stretches much further afield. He exhibited widely in Britain and abroad, his popularity extending to the U.S. and Australia, and his work is represented in many private and public collections including The Tate Gallery, The National Museum of Wales, Stadts Galerie, Stuttgart, The British Museum and The Arts Council Collection.
The exhibition represents a unique opportunity to see a selection of approximately thirty paintings and drawings dating from 1971 to 2005 most of which have not been exhibited before. It marks 10 years since his death in 2007 at the age of 60.
All of the work in the exhibition is for sale.
