Spanning seven decades of Anthony Whishaw’s artistic practice, this display brings together groups of works centred around recurring themes that have consistently captivated the artist: movement, figures, nature, and the illusion of space.

In the studio, Whishaw arranges works of varying sizes and at various stages of development in close proximity, to foster a dialogue between them and guide them toward completion.

All works are available for sale, generating revenue for the artist and the RA.

Find yourself in the woods with an exhibition of striking Treescapes by Anthony Whishaw RA.

Anthony Whishaw started painting over 75 years ago. He discovered a love of drawing and painting whilst at school and has never looked back. Ranging from small works on paper to 6-metre-long canvases, these paintings are an exploration of his personal memories and experiences.

See eight of Whishaw’s large-scale tree paintings, interpreting the artist’s first-hand interactions and preoccupations with forests and woodland. These large, multi-layered, textural artworks intend to provide an immersive experience, turning the gallery into a painted forest to explore.
