Patrick Burke Retrospective
11 May to 3 September 2019
Patrick Burke (1932-2010) was a Shoreham-born painter and writer who gained success in London, Rome and New York. The works from the height of his career are alive with colour, inspired by the time he spent in Italy. These contrast with the more subdued images of Hove seafront and buildings painted when Burke lived in Brunswick Square in the latter part of his life. This display shows the range of his work including early etchings and sketches of Brighton life, paintings, sketchbooks, notebooks and diaries.
