NOW ON VIEW: "Betty Woodman and George Woodman," Charleston, East Sussex, UK, March 25-September 10, 2023
March 25, 2023 through September 10, 2023
The exhibition at Charleston explores ways that Betty Woodman’s and George Woodman’s shared life and experiences over more than six decades found expression in the works that emerged from each artists’ studio.
Art history significantly influenced them both, as can be seen in many of the works on view at Charleston and numerous other works in the Foundation’s collection, as shown here. The pair traveled extensively, visiting museums around the world, studying and absorbing artworks from a range of places and periods. They incorporated lessons learned from classical art and mythology, European Renaissance and Baroque periods, prints and ceramics from Asia, decorative arts and design, Modernist painting and sculpture. References to the nude, odalisques and the female figure across time and place are particularly present in each of their work.
