About

Sargy Mann: Let it be felt that the painter was there

Sargy Mann (29 May 1937 – 5 April 2015) was a British landscape and figurative painter.

He was acclaimed as a colourist and his diverse works are recognisable by their rich colour palette, distinct composition and a desire to capture a sense of light and space. Mann's distinctive vision was deeply influenced by Bonnard and Cezanne but his paintings remain remarkably original. Affected by failing vision from the age of 36, Mann was compelled to find new ways of seeing and working - this creative liberation produced a celebrated body of work that continued after his total loss of sight in 2005.

This exhibition, which has been developed in close collaboration with the artist's family, is the largest public showing of Mann's work to date and draws from all periods of his career. It includes an extensive collection of paintings and drawings, alongside never previously exhibited archival material, photographs and audio recordings that reveal fascinating insights into Mann's practise.
