The work of few British writers could lend themselves as aptly to landscape painting as the brooding and melodramatic novels and poems of Thomas Hardy.

In this new exhibition featuring the work of painters Rob Poutney, Dave Gunning and David Inshaw, Hardy's landscape comes to life. These contemporary depictions of the evocative backdrop to the novelist's work use the canvas to recreate the setting of the novels to spectacular effect. The exhibition will also be at Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum and Dorset County Museum during 2012.
