‘I have always recognised the role of elemental nature in Delius’s work which expresses for me the deepest sense of the very essence of creation’.

(Keith Grant on Frederick Delius)

As an art student in the 1950s, Keith Grant (born 1930) discovered the music of Frederick Delius (1862-1934), and immediately appreciated its expression of a deep affinity with nature. Then, as he developed as a painter, his love for Delius’s compositions strengthened and deepened, inspiring him to attempt the same relationship with the natural world in his own work. Now in his 90th year, Keith makes explicit the inspiration of Delius, in his latest extensive series of 75 paintings, which explore the landscapes of England, Norway and France that have meant so much to artist and composer. (The paintings range in price from £2250 to £42000.)

The accompanying 86-page catalogue is fully illustrated in colour and contains essays and biographical information on both Delius and Grant, and the artist’s own commentaries on his works. (The catalogue is priced at £20 + p&p.)
