Vincent Haddelsey 1934 - 2010
Tuesday 15th April - Sunday 27th April 2014 Vincent Haddelsey
Born in Grimsby in April 1934, Vincent Haddelsey was a self-taught artist who acquired a love of horses at a young age and travelled the world in pursuit of his subject matter. He studied horses and landscapes in Mongolia, China, India and Chile, participated in the rodeo in Mexico, rode with hounds in Europe and show jumped in England and Canada, all the time painting the scenes he saw. Preferring to be known as an ‘equestrian painter’ rather than an artist, he exhibited widely and his work is included in the Royal collection. He died in Paris in August 2010. This retrospective exhibition of paintings and prints is a rare chance to view the work of this fascinating artist.
