Cedric Morris & Christopher Wood: A Forgotten Friendship

This autumn Norwich Castle hosts the first exhibition devoted to the British artists Cedric Morris (1889-1982) and Christopher Wood (1901-30) focussing on their friendship and the many artistic links between them.

Their friendship had a marked effect on their two careers. Morris was a Welsh baronet, who lived to be 93, whilst Wood’s life was cut tragically short by his suicide at the age of only 29. Both artists spent time in France just after the end of World War I, where they moved in exalted artistic circles which included Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau and Sergei Diaghilev. Morris and Wood were attracted to the sea and both painters spent time in Brittany and St. Ives, where their naïve style found expression in their many pictures of boats and harbours.

This exhibition celebrates a period of British art which is increasingly admired and collected. Cedric Morris & Christopher Wood: A Forgotten Friendship features loans from public and private collections across the UK, and will tour to the Mascalls Gallery in Kent and the Falmouth Art Gallery. A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
