On now – 9th Mar
Malvina Cheek Retrospective:
Scenes from a Hampstead Life
On now – 2nd Mar
Malvina Cheek has lived in Hampstead for
over 60 years. Its combination of country
and city provided a constant source of
inspiration. Apart from early studies while a
student at the Royal College of Art, this
exhibition represents her development as a
painter from the dark blues and greens of
Belsize Avenue paintings, through to the
rich red palette of her most recent works
completed in 2005. In addition, a selection
of her graphic work, including book
illustrations, will be on display.
