press release

Bernard Jacobson Gallery is very pleased to announce that our second exhibition in our new space on Duke Street St James’s will be a series of paintings by one of Britain’s leading painters William Tillyer.

The Palmer paintings continue Tillyer’s long engagement with the English landscape and in particular his lifelong obsession with clouds. The Palmer of the title is Samuel Palmer 1805-81 the visionary British Romantic landscape painter who, like Tillyer, had an almost mystical view of man’s relationship with the landscape and who has long been an influence and inspiration for Tillyer. (The subtitle is from a line from Psalm 65:11).
