Gainsborough's House and Cedric Morris Exhibition
Wednesday 16 May 2018

This visit is arranged in conjunction with the Arts Societies CANTAB and South Cambs. The lead society is CANTAB.

Cedric Morris is one of the great independent spirits of modern British art. A wonderfully original and inventive painter of flowers, landscapes and people, he was also an internationally celebrated plantsman, specialising in irises, of which he bred at least 90 named varieties.

This exhibition is at Gainsborough's House in Sudbury, not far from Morris' last home in Hadleigh. He lived there for 42 years, creating a remarkable garden in the grounds and running his art school from the house.
