Abbot Hall's first exhibition of 2013 places the Zurich-based artist's new oil paintings alongside the old masters that inspired them.

Swiss painter Uwe Wittwer takes European old master paintings as the starting point for his oil paintings, inverting and altering works from Watteau to Constable to explore themes of violence, legitimacy and deception. Wittwer played a key role in planning this exhibition, which features a number of new pieces.
