PRUNELLA CLOUGH; PAINTINGS at 42 Carlton Place, Glasgow

10/03/2019

Though she kept a low profile, Prunella Clough (1919–1999) was one of the most important artists working in Britain in the second half of the twentieth century. Initially known for neo-romantic landscapes and social-realist depictions of labour and industry, Clough achieved a breakthrough around 1960, inaugurating four decades of enigmatic, unpredictable and allusive post-modern abstraction.

In the centenary year of her birth, and twenty years since her death, 42 Carlton Place will show around twenty works, dates spanning the 1960s through the 1990s, curated by AICA member Merlin James. Notable works will include the six-foot high Wasteland, 1979,  and By The Seaside I, from the year Clough died.
