Shining a spotlight on women artists in RAMM’s fine art collection, this exhibition features works from the 1770s until 2011.

Highlights of the exhibition include views of Exeter after the blitz by the suffragette artist Olive Wharry (1886-1947), works by the popular Victorian children’s book illustrator Kate Greenaway, and detailed watercolour studies of birds and insects by Miss Ann Lee painted in the 1770s.

A key painting is In Sight, Lord Dundonald’s Dash on Ladysmith by Lucy Kemp-Welch (1869-1958), who in the 1890s had the well-deserved reputation as the century's most gifted painter of the horse. This work will be on public display for the first time in decades following a successful fundraising appeal for its conservation.

There are also modern works by Barbara Hepworth, Gillian Ayres, Mary Martin, Dame Laura Knight, Primrose Pitman and Judith Ackland, among others.
