Flight and the Artistic Imagination
Compton Verney, Warwickshire, UK
29 June - 30 September 2012
This major exhibition explores the instinctive human desire to fly from the classical era to the modern day. Starting with the imaginations of Leonardo da Vinci and Francisco Goya and ending with space travel, satellite images and everyday air travel, it promises to be an exciting exploration of creative responses to flight.
Flight and the Artistic Imagination includes paintings, sculpture, photographs, drawings, prints and video, by artists such as Henri Matisse, Paul Nash, Peter Lanyon, Hiraki Sawa and Layla Curtis.
