A retrospective of rare and important works by John Craxton opened at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge on 3 December. The exhibition was opened by Sir David Attenborough, a lifelong friend of the artist. It includes over sixty paintings, drawings and photographs, spanning the artist's career from his dark post-war paintings, to the vibrant compositions he created after settling in Crete in 1960.
Admission to the exhibition is free and it continues until Monday 21 April. Please see the museum's website for visiting times: FITZWILLIAM MUSEUM
A major monograph on the artist, written by Ian Collins, was published in 2011 by Lund Humphries.
