A Question of Guilt : A Crime Writer’s Collection
18 Jun 2016 - 11 Sep 2016
An incredibly intricate and thoughtful exhibition inspired by Agatha Christie.
An exhibition of fine paintings with a theme inspired by Agatha Christie and detective fiction, where each painting has a title and a caption suggesting a possible role that might be played by the subject in a larger mystery. Artists include Duncan Grant, Gwen John and other greats from British Modernism.
Frances Fyfield is an award winning crime writer who has written twenty four suspense novels and, in the meantime, collected rather more pictures. This exhibition showcases just part of her eclectic private collection of paintings, amassed over fifty years. Each painting on display tells a story and each character featured has a role in our very own murder mystery. On the walls you will see the victim, charlatans, thieves, murderers, onlookers, bit players, detectives. It is up to you to decide how guilty or how innocent each one might be.
