Opulence & Anxiety: Landscape Paintings from the Royal Academy of Arts This exhibition will gather together highlights from the Royal Academy's British Landscapes Collection by Royal Academicians from the 18th century to the present day. It will form a comprehensive survey of landscape painting in this country and will include artists such as J.M.W. Turner, Constable, Gainsborough, Samuel Palmer, William Frederick Witherington, Benjamin Williams Leader, John Nash, Wilfred de Glehn, Sir Kyffin Williams, David Hockney and Barbara Rae. The exhibition will examine the pastoral, historical, or implied narratives in landscape paintings and will also look beyond to the impact of modernism and abstraction on the genre. Tim Barringer, Paul Mellon Professor in the Department of the History of Art, Yale University, New Haven, will select the exhibition and will contribute an analytical, art historical essay to the catalogue on the development of British landscape painting. Kate Whiteford: Airfield In her work, the London-based artist Kate Whiteford, has developed a strong interest in the relationship between landscape and history. Following exploratory visits to Compton Verney, Kate is developing a land-art project within the grounds that will combine the Capability Brown sight-lines with the notion of an airport runway, with particular reference to the runway signs and markings that exist to direct airline pilots. The intention is that the work will be best viewed from one of the exhibition galleries within which will be housed a contextual exhibition regarding the conception and creation of the work, alongside a display of Kate's earlier work and site specific wall drawings.
