New English Art Club Members Exhibition
15 March 2011 - 27 March 2011
The New English Art Club (NEAC) exhibited their Members Exhibition throughout the Foundling Museum whilst celebrating its 125th birthday. One of the foremost exhibiting art societies, the NEAC represents the very best of contemporary British figurative painting.
From the beginning the NEAC has attracted the best painters and draughtsmen into its membership. Formed in 1885 by artists influenced by Impressionism most of the members work from the observed world, either directly or at one or two removes. The NEAC makes art that records people, times and places whilst exploiting realism and abstraction at the same time. Today the club remains at the forefront of painting in the UK. It reflects the contemporary world around us and continues to develop the art of interpreting the visual world in a skilful and imaginative way and with a sense of style and wit which pulls it out in front of the other ranks of exhibiting groups.
