Colchester & Ipswich Museums

Guy William Eves, SBA Fellow, has been working to complete the last of four pictures for a specific exhibition with Colchester & Ipswich Museums. – The four drawings are of historic trees in Christchurch Park, Ipswich. Two Chestnuts, both now in the permanent collection of Colchester & Ipswich Museum, one Oak and the oldest tree in the park, a Yew which is over 600 years old. – They are part of an exhibition called Landscape Rebels at the Wolsey Gallery, Christchurch Mansion, Ipswich. The exhibition also includes works by Constable, Monet and Turner and is on until 16 April 2023.
