Now in its third year, Fortnum’s X Frank makes a triumphant return with a formidable collection of works, many previously unseen, from the distinguished modern British artist, John Virtue.
The exhibition features over 60 large-scale monochromatic works by Virtue, placed throughout the home of Fortnum & Mason, in the heart of Piccadilly. The works have been brought to you in collaboration with eminent art collector, Frank Cohen, and curated by Robert Upstone, former Director of The Fine Art Society and former Head of Modern British Art at Tate.
John Virtue is one of the most distinguished painters working today in the United Kingdom. Having trained at the Slade School of Fine Art and now residing in North Norfolk, Virtue’s practice is continually informed by natural environments and his geographical moving from Lancashire to Devon, to London, and now to Norfolk.
