Anthony Earnshaw
The Imp of Surrealism

8 September - 8 October 2011


Anthony Earnshaw - The Imp of Surrealism is a survey exhibition spanning over fifty years of his work. An original and witty artist and writer, Earnshaw was born in Ilkley, West Yorkshire in 1924, the year Lenin died and Andr̩ Breton published his first Manifesto. In the latter half of the 20th Century Earnshaw's unique vision led to a rich and varied range of work, establishing various 'periods' in his creative life: paintings, drawings, boxed assemblages, an idiosyncratic comic strip, pictorial alphabets and two published collections of his aphorisms. At the age of 20, through an interest in poetry and literature, he discovered Surrealism which had a profound influence on his thinking and creative development.
