Anthony Earnshaw The Imp of Surrealism

Cartwright Hall, Bradford Museums
17 March - 8 July 2012

The Imp of Surrealism is a survey exhibition spanning over fifty years of Earnshaw's devotion to his artistry. An original and witty thinker, Earnshaw was born in Ilkley, West Yorkshire in 1924, the year Lenin died and Breton published his first Manifesto. In the latter half of the 20th Century Earnshaw's work was a unique vision that led to a divergent range of works establishing various 'periods' in his creative life: paintings, drawings, boxed assemblages, an idiosyncratic comic strip 'Wokker', a series of pictorial alphabets, various publications and some late crayon drawings. At the age of 20, through an interest in poetry and literature, he discovered Surrealism which was to become his passion in life, manifested in his art.
