David Inshaw Acquisition

17 May 2016

The Victoria Art Gallery is delighted to announce that it has recently acquired The River Bank by David Inshaw. In The River Bank we see the contrast between the carefully ordered world of the enclosed garden and the untamed wildness of the river bank, between reason and the madness that overcame Ophelia, this tragic Shakespearean character.

The purchase was supported by the ACE/V&A Purchase Grant Fund and the Friends of the Victoria Art Gallery. You can see The River Bank on display in the lower gallery as part of the Bath Society of Artists exhibition until 4 June.
