About

Reconnect with nature in this contemplative exhibition of British landscape scenery from The Atkinson’s fine art collection. Take a meditative and relaxing journey through mountains, lakes and seashore as we follow in the footsteps of artists from the early 19th century to the present day.

Perhaps one of the few silver linings of lockdown and the restrictions on foreign travel has been a renewal of interest in our own natural heritage. In the early 1800s there was a similar sense of looking inwards to discover domestic landscapes that had been overlooked. Artists and travellers kept at home by the Napoleonic Wars turned instead to the wild places of Britain for inspiration: the mountains of Wales, the beauty of the Lake District and the lochs and hills of Scotland.

In these paintings we see the landscape through the artists’ eyes. Throughout the exhibition we explore different ways of seeing and suggest a range of simple meditative exercises that take images of mountains, lakes, countryside and shore as a starting point to reimagine our relationship with both art and nature.
