150 years after his birth, rediscover Fred Appleyard with a major new retrospective

This summer, a major retrospective will rediscover the accomplishments of a British great when Rising Splendour: Fred Appleyard, From the Royal Academy to the Itchen Valley, opens at The Gallery in The Arc, Winchester.

As one of the finest painters Britain has produced in the last two centuries, it is surprising that the name Fred Appleyard (1874 - 1963) is not as well-known as it should be. Appreciated during his lifetime, he received the Turner Gold Medal for landscape painting, and visitors to the Royal Academy restaurant are still greeted by his stunning 1902 mural.
