All too often artists with talent in several fields become recognized for just one. This is the starting point for a journey through the creative life and oeuvre of Beryl Bainbridge, who was best known as a writer, but was also a highly accomplished visual artist. This exhibition shows a selection of Bainbridge’s paintings, etchings and drawings, contextualised by material from her novels, and offers the rare opportunity to see a range of her first editions and archival material from the British Library. Screenings of documentary ‘Beryl’s Last Year’ and an extract from the BBC’s ‘According to Beryl’, as well as objects from her legendary and eccentric home provide an insight into the life of this fascinating creative figure.

An exhibition by the Cultural Institute at King’s College London, curated by Susie Christensen. With thanks to Psiche Hughes, the family and estate of Beryl Bainbridge and the King’s Department of English. Featuring loans in partnership with the British Library.
