Pioneers: Clare Sheridan 'Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi'
Clare Sheridan originally took to sculpture as a means of release and escape from personal crisis. In this film, Lawrence Hendra explores her portrait of Gandhi, which demonstrates not only her skill as a sculptor, but her extraordinary ability to integrate with individuals from utterly opposing walks of life. The present work is currently on display at Philip Mould & Company as part of our exhibition, Pioneers: 500 Years of Women in British Art.
Pioneers: 500 Years of Women in British Art explores the history of female artists in Britain who defied the status-quo. This multidisciplinary exhibition progresses from 16th century portraitists, to painters working at the forefront of the British avant-garde in the 20th century.
This active and constantly developing area of art history, which examines the historical significance of female artists, garners continual debate. We hope to contribute to this rich and evolving art historical discussion. The artists exhibited are individuals who we have researched over the last thirty years as art dealers but have never before displayed chronologically. This exhibition explores and re-presents 500 years of pioneering female artists who have been central to the development of British Art.
