Painting is an expression of my intense response to nature.'

We are delighted to announce the first European show of work by Patricia Tobacco Forrester, long acknowledged as one of America's leading watercolourists.

According to John Arthur, an authority on contemporary American Realism, Patricia is one of the artists most responsible for the revival of the medium and its adaptation to the large scale'. Furthermore, she stands out from her peers in her insistence on working directly from nature' (Spirit of Place, 1989, page 139).

Patricia has travelled widely in order to paint on location: across the United States, into Central and South America, out to Pacific and Caribbean islands, and over to Europe. The images that she brings back present vigorous landscapes with extraordinary immediacy: lush, intensely coloured vegetation framing enticing perspectives. Over the last four decades, these have been exhibited widely in American museums and galleries, and have entered many prestigious public and corporate collections. Her etchings are also held in the collections of the British Museum.

The show is accompanied by a fully illustrated biographical catalogue, which is available from the gallery at £10 (£2 UK, £3 Europe, £5 World).
