A new exhibition opens this week at Gallery 47 in Cork Street, London. JHW Fine Art have collected over 200 paintings, prints, posters and sculptures all related to football in an exhibition; "England's Glory 2010".
It's a refreshingly positive response to the World Cup with many great pieces by artists old and new, some well known and others less so. There are some super paintings and prints from post war British art and a couple of my favourites are "Goal" 1953 by Clifford Fishwick and another older one "Charlton Athletic + Derby County" 1946 by Joyce Smith. There are also some really good works by contemporary artists such as John Duffin's paintings and etchings.
The exhibition is just on for this week in Cork Street but if you cannot make it the exhibition is also on the JHW Fine Art website http://www.jhwfineart.com/
"England's Glory 2010" on from 21st - 26th June at:
47 Cork Street
