Alan Sorrell Exhibition: 25 October 2013 – 25 January 2014.
 
This exhibition will provide the first major survey of Alan Sorrell’s oeuvre. Although he worked in variety of disciplines, he is best known today for his archeologically informed drawings of early historical sites and monuments and tableaux of ancient life. The exhibition, organised and sponsored by Liss Fine Art, will travel to The Beecroft Art Gallery, Westcliff on Sea after opening at Sir John Soane’s Museum. A fully illustrated book accompanies the show.
