Mon–Sat 10–6 t 020 7937 3518 Ethel Walker ‘Light through Cloud’ Ethel Walker has been showing with the Thackeray Gallery for exactly 30 years now and to mark the occasion she is showing 30 previously unseen works at her latest exhibition there. Walker is very much a painter of place – the West Coast of Scotland, where she has lived most of her working life. It is a ‘big’ landscape in every sense, its wild beauty a hard one to get under the skin of pictorially. Avoiding the picturesque trap, Walker focuses on the skies and light rather than topography – as Constable discovered 200 years ago, they define the way we see any landscape – her great panoramas, ‘windows on the world’ often over two metres long, are powerfully expressive of the vitality of nature.
