A Cloudburst of Material Possessions: A fantasy on a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci

A Purdy Hicks Gallery Touring Exhibition

Sat 27 Sep – Sat 25 Oct 1997

A Cloudburst of Material Possessions is a small pen and ink sketch by Leonard da Vinci of a deluge of everyday objects falling from the sky – a graphic analogy for the triumph of materialism over spirituality. This exhibition brings together the work of nineteen contemporary British artists who were invited to respond to da Vince’s drawing in a variety of media.

Artists include Edward Allington, Jordan Baseman, Brian Catling, Simon Callery, Stephen Farthing, David Mach and Mario Rossi.
