We are really pleased with the image to be used on the poster and other media and must express appreciation for permission to use it to the Hull University Art Collection and especially to John Bernasconi who is responsible for this wonderful collection.
The painting, Girl Reading, (1933) is by Adrian Paul Allinson (1890- 1959).
It is a fine example of the vision involved in amassing the University’s marvellous collection of 20th Century art works.
The University of Hull Art Collection is a small but outstanding collection specialising in paintings, sculpture, drawings and prints produced in Britain 1890-1940.
It includes works by Beardsley, Sickert, Steer, Lucien Pissarro, Augustus John, Stanley Spencer, Wyndham Lewis and Ben Nicholson as well as sculpture by Epstein, Gill, Gaudier-Brzeska and Henry Moore. The Camden Town Group and Bloomsbury artists are particularly well represented.
It is now housed in a large exhibition space in the re-modelled Brynmor Jones Library, open daily from 10 till 5, later on Tuesdays, till 7. Well worth a visit!
