An examination of the art of the painter Glyn Philpot who in the early years of the 20th century became a very successful painter of society portraits, almost to rival the work of John Singer Sargent .
Then after moving to Paris and Berlin in the 1930s he radically changed his style to reflect the influence of Picasso, Matisse & Derain and also the German New Realism movement. Philpot's portrait 'Marchioness of Carisbrooke' can be seen on display at the Gallery. The portrait features Irene Frances Adza Denison, married to Queen Victoria's favourite grandson. Alexander Albert Mountbatten.
