Exhibition is taking place at Brook Gallery Exeter
8th May - 7th June
Many of the world's leading artists have enjoyed making posters for their exhibitions. These often took the form of original lithographs, printed by some of the great Parisian ateliers.
With little in common with offset or digital reproductions, they have an established role within an artist's oeuvre. Artists such as Picasso, Miro, Matisse, and Chagall were intimately involved in the production of their lithographic posters.
Designed as exhibition announcements or advertisements for events and tourism, the posters were printed in large quantities to reach a broad audience. They dotted city streets across Europe, in shop windows and cafes and on bulletin boards.
The poster, by nature, is ephemeral and mint copies are rare so Brook Gallery are Delighted to exhibit a selection of these striking prints in its Exeter Gallery.

Now with a new gallery and show room in the centre of Exeter...
One of the most prestigious art galleries in Devon, the Brook Gallery in Budleigh Salterton, came into existence in 1997 as a gallery with specialisation in Fine Art original print. Importantly, whilst still embracing these principles, the gallery has been able to extend its reach and media presence to incorporate most other fine art disciplines including paintings, and 3 dimensional works through our portfolio 'ANOTHER DIMENSION', incorporting some of the most compelling and accomplished sculptors and potters working today. Over our 18 years, Brook has flourished, having acquired an enviable reputation across the UK and beyond, consulting, sourcing and installing the best Fine Art into beautiful homes like yours, exciting hostelries and exceptional hotels together with the some of the best professional offices and establishments across the UK.
Well known for working with some of the world’s best known names past and present; our passion, energy and integrity has enabled the Brook Gallery to expand into a large and beautiful space in the centre of Exeter, which opened in March 2015.
This new and exciting centre for art continues to inspire all who visit. The gallery itself shows a further diverse range of original, compelling and collectable work, extending our repertoire by further incorporating new talent alongside our own celebrated collection, allowing us to respond to the new and exciting projects coming our way. In addition to this, our newly implemented outreach programme is aimed to challenge and develop its participants and its viewers alike.
Brook Gallery Exeter - Moor to Sea, 11th July - 29th August: Alan Cotton, one of the most revered artists in our midst selects a body of work from artists across theUK who are known for their love of the West Country and studies of the same. Beautiful paintings become the theme of this show. Given a subject as diverse and often challenging as our region’s landscapes and ‘lifescapes’, these Fine Artists have produced the most astonishing selection of styles, colours, moods and hues to excite and inspire you.
Brook Gallery Budleigh - Grosvenor School Inspired, 15th July - 28th August: A group exhibition of contemporary linocuts, inspired by the renowned British Grosvenor School of Art style, featuring artists: Paul Cleden, Lisa Takahashi and Andrew Pavitt. Claude Flight, one of the school founding members, taught the art of linocutting and influenced his student's work to capture the spirit of their time, immortalising the rapidly changing world of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The subject matter included that of sporting pursuits, railway and underground interiors. Many contemporary artists attempt to capture the genre, few however succeed in the way that Cleden, Takahashi and Pavitt do, notably capturing the essence of the genre whilst putting their own individual styling and nuances into their work.
