Robin Tanner: From Goldsmiths to the Great Depression

30 July – 8 October

A new exhibition at Chippenham Museum will run from 30 July to 8 October 2022 exploring the life and work of Robin Tanner during his formative years between the First and Second World Wars. Using key moments from Robin Tanner’s life, such as his training at Goldsmiths College and building a new home in Kington Langley, the exhibition will explore wider themes such as the etching revival, craft and design and developments in art education.

At the heart of the exhibition will be works from the recently acquired Golder-Thompson Gift in Memory of Arthur Norman. These etchings and engravings from the 1920s and 30s form the earliest works in the gift and help us understand Tanner’s blossoming interest in etching, wedded to his love of the English countryside.
