28 May 2019

 

On Tuesday 14 May 2019 a small group met in the Research Space to view part of the very generous legacy the artist Alan Reynolds and his wife Vona have made to Kettle’s Yard, introduced by the curator Eliza Spindel and Director, Andrew Nairne.

Reynolds’s work evolved strikingly from New Romantic landscapes to austere abstraction, and was the subject of a fine monograph by Michael Harrison (former Director of Kettle’s Yard) published by Lund Humphries in 2011. Their friendship led to this donation. Aside from some of Reynolds’s works, the display includes works by Josef Albers, Hans Arp, Gillian Ayres, Sonia Delaunay, Sophie Taeuber-Arp and John Carter, whose print ‘Identical Shapes: Green’, made for sale by the Friends of Kettle’s Yard, is currently on show in the café. One small Reynolds watercolour, a study for ‘Summer: Young September’s Cornfield’ (1954), has been chosen to go in Helen Ede’s bathroom in the House.
