Charleston dive into the overlooked body of work belonging to Welsh artist Nina Hamnett, a key figure in early 20th-century modern art.

Nina Hamnett was an important part of the Bloomsbury Group in the 1920s and 30s, as a key point of connection to Camden Town Group and The School of Paris. Her work was celebrated as much in Paris as in London, and she was particularly known for her enigmatic portraits and Parisian café scenes.

This exhibition will explore her frank, intimate portraits, while also looking at the breadth of her technical skill as a painter. There are many portraits of other significant artists from the period, including Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Ossip Zadkine and Horace Brodzky.

Three decades of her work will be on display, demonstrating her significant contribution to modern art and portraiture.

Please note: your ticket to Nina Hamnett also includes entry to Charleston’s Lisa Brice exhibition.
