A Discerning Eye – Orleans House Gallery, London

I for one am very much looking forward to the below exhibition, showcasing highlights from the Henry Boxer Collection. A must visit if you are in London soon!

Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham is excited to present a contemporary exhibition revealing the rich diversity of the Henry Boxer Collection. Henry Boxer, the Richmond-based dealer and collector who has now reached the milestone age of 65 has for four decades been a pioneer in collecting and promoting outsider and visionary art from across the world.

Take this unique opportunity to explore the fascinating perspectives of acclaimed outsider and visionary artists, including the Edwardian portrayer of mad cats, Louis Wain; the housewife-medium, Madge Gill; the visionary depicter of resurrections, Donald Pass; and contemporary savant artists George Widener and Stephen Wiltshire.

Orleans House Gallery has been given unparalleled access to Henry Boxer’s gallery works as well as highlights from his own personal collection to present a compelling introduction to an art movement that, finally, in recent years is receiving the recognition it deserves. Follow your own discerning eye around this extraordinary collection of visionary works, from the occult to the mediumistic, and be amazed and spellbound by the gems on display.

Dates: 14 November – 7 February 2016

Venue: Orleans House Gallery, Riverside, Twickenham, TW1 3DJ
