Louisa Hodgson: A New Perspective
A New Perspective unites the extensive collection of Hodgson’s drawings held by the Hatton and Laing Art Galleries.
Until 11 August 2018 (historic exhibition)
Louisa Hodgson taught at Kings College, now Newcastle University, from 1931 into the 1960s. Specialising in perspective and technical methods, Hodgson was respected for her precise depictions of architectural space.
A New Perspective unites the extensive collection of Hodgson’s drawings held by the Hatton Gallery and the Laing Art Gallery. Many of these works will be on display for the first time.
Alongside Hodgson’s drawings, the exhibition will include modern and contemporary works from the Hatton collection that are influenced by the rules of perspective.
