David Gentleman
London, You're Beautiful

4 - 25 May 2012

David Gentleman's distinctive prints and watercolours are familiar to us from a lifetime's work that has included Penguin Classics, stamps, political posters, the National Trust logo and the platform-length wood engravings at Charing Cross tube station. He is best known as an artist with a profound sense of place, and he has spent the last year immersed in his home city, capturing its changeable skies, its hidden places and restless people from Rainham Marshes to Hampstead Heath. These illustrations, for a new book published on 3 May 2012 by Penguin, bear witness to David's passion for and curiosity about London.

Penguin Books will be launching 'London You're Beautiful: An Artist's Year' by David Gentleman at The Fine Art Society, and copies of the book, as well as the original watercolours and drawings, will be available to buy from the gallery from 4-25 May.

A selection of the exhibited works are available to view in the online gallery to the right. Please contact the gallery for a full list.
