Midcentury Modern:
the Art of the Fifties
Curated by Richard Turkington, FRSA
November 14 - December 12
Hereford Museum & Art Gallery FREE
The 1950s are associated with a grey austerity in the difficult adjustment to peace after the Second World War. Artists played their part in a changing world, placing more emphasis on everyday domestic and urban scenes; in the continued development of abstraction and in the greater use of printmaking to extend ‘art for all’. This exhibition captures the range of work produced in the 1950s, encouraging us to look again at a neglected period in the production of art. It will include works by established artists such as John Piper and Henry Moore but also the less well-known, especially women artists. Most of the artworks will be available to purchase.
Richard Turkington is the Director of Fifties Art and shows regularly through exhibitions and art fairs, his collection is can be viewed at
