Seago Exhibition

A Hundred Years of Edward Seago at Home and Abroad
presented by The Taylor Gallery at The Gallery in Cork Street,
28 Cork Street, Mayfair, London
Free entry
Mon 15th -Sat 20th Feb 9.30-6.00 pm

I have only just heard about this exhibition and I am hoping to go there this week. I have seen Seago's work in books so I am looking forward to seeing originals.

There are around 60 watercolours and oils on show many of which have not been seen in public for 30 or40 years.
Seago was a self taught artist who painted landscapes and seascapes with big skies often of his native Norfolk or from his travels and journeys made in his boat. He also painted portraits, ballet, the circus and was an official war artist.
