A selling exhibition of watercolours and drawings by Thomas Hennell (1903-1945), mainly drawn from the Estate of the Artist, curated by Jennings Fine Art.

Thomas Hennell was an artist, writer and countryman. He was tragically killed at the end of the Second World War, in which he served with distinction as an Official War Artist.  Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious both regarded him as a ‘man of genius’. He was a key contributor to the Recording Britain project and lectured (more than once) at the Art Workers’ Guild in 1940 on the subject of ‘Country Crafts’.
