This exhibition showcases five important paintings from the estate of Mark Gertler’s son, Luke Gertler (1932–2017), which are on loan from Art Fund.

The loans include The Artist’s Parents (c1909-10), The Artist’s Brother, Harry (c1911), Daffodils in a Blue Bottle (1916), Trees at Sanatorium, Scotland (1921) and The Coster Woman (1923). These loans represent the major themes and motifs of Gertler’s early career: portraiture (particularly of members of his own family), the still life, and landscape, and have provided the catalyst and context for the current show.

This exhibition also marks the 80th anniversary year of the artist’s death, and these loans, executed between c1908 and 1924, span Gertler’s personal and artistic journey from the East End to Hampstead via the Slade School of Fine Art.
