As she once observed “painting for me is an active celebration of the life into which it is integrated.” Just a reminder finally not to overlook the excellent bronze sculptures of dogs and horses by Suffolk-based Stuart Anderson that are beingshown alongside Mabbutt’s paintings. Trained at the Royal College and castinghis own work Anderson brings a terrific sense of vitality and muscular tautness to his subjects that lifts them well above the routine and the sentimental.
