This exhibition will provide the first major survey of Alan Sorrell’s oeuvre. Born in London in 1904, Sorrell studied at the Royal College of Art where he became a key figure amongst an outstanding generation of students including Ravilious, Bawden, Mahoney, Barnett Freedman and Douglas Percy Bliss.
In 1928, Sorrell won the painting scholarship for the British School at Rome.
He would later become Senior Assistant Instructor of Drawing at the RCA. Although he worked in variety of disciplines, he is best known today for his archeologically informed drawings of early historical sites and monuments and tableaux of ancient life.
