Bob Crossley - Early Works 1958 - 1961
15th April, 2021 - 15th May, 2021
Born in the north of England in 1912, a member of the Rochdale Art Society and Manchester Academy of Arts after WWII, Bob Crossley produced a wonderful body of semi-abstract figurative paintings both just before and after his move to Cornwall in 1959. Although in his latter years Bob was to become known for his more colourful fully abstract compositions, undoubtedly influenced in some ways by his friend and fellow very well known artist Terry Frost, he has left behind a small and focused body of work which screams mid-century British painting. We're proud to exhibit a focused showing of eight such works from this period.
