A Bath Painter's Travels, Peter Brown

Peter Brown: New Paintings & Drawings of Bath: A Bath Painter's Travels - Peter Brown

So, Pete "the Street" Brown's latest exhibition is on at The Victoria Art Gallery in Bath, and of course, I picked up this catalogue afterwards, (along with the previously reviewed, older book of London paintings).


It's good to see Pete still painting Bath and making it fresh by diversifying into sunset and even night paintings, along with no longer being so disdainful of some of the more iconic central Bath architecture. (For instance, there are several paintings of the Abbey in this collection.) It's also good to see the wide range of places he's painted across the country and abroad. The most surprising of these was the choice to go to Glastonbury Festival!
