Sybil and Cecil: Cutting Through Time, 10:00am Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The bestselling author of Mr Lear charts the story of the pioneers of modernist linocut art.

In 1922, Cyril Power, a fifty-year-old architect, left his family to work with the twenty-four-year-old Sybil Andrews. They would be together for twenty years. Their dynamic, streamlined works full of movement and brilliant colour, summed up the hectic interwar years. Theirs was a world of futurists, surrealists and pioneering abstraction; yet at the same time they looked back, to medieval myths and early music, to country ways disappearing from sight.
