The work of Bridport-based impressionist Hugo Grenville has been exhibited alongside pieces by Cezanne, Degas and Renoir in New York.
The Impressionism: A World View exhibition taking place at Nassau County Museum of Art this month has brought together major works by the French impressionist masters with pieces by contemporary artists.
Hugo Grenville, regarded by many as the leader of modern romanticism in art, said: “I’m delighted to have my work exhibited alongside the impressionist masters that have been such an inspiration to me.
“In these difficult times we can draw solace from art as it reminds us to be joyful in life – especially surrounded by this wonderful Dorset landscape.”
Hugo has been represented by Findlay Galleries of New York since 2006. Over the past 30 years he has held more than 20 one-man exhibitions in London, New York, Palm Beach and Hong Kong.
Hugo relocated from London to West Milton several years ago to set up his studio, where he works and teaches other artists during a summer school.
Hugo will be opening his studio to the public during Dorset Arts Week.
Visitors can view a selection of works from Hugo’s archives, as well as some of his latest studio work. Some of his art pieces will also be on sale. Hugo’s studio will be open every day, 10am to 4pm, from Saturday, May 21 to Sunday 29.
People can also enjoy drinks with the artist on Saturday, May 21 from noon until 3pm. For more information on Hugo and his work visit hugogrenville.com
