The Female Gaze

Five female artists explore the human body

An eccentric view of the English countryside

Charles Duranty (1919-2006) was a poet who worked for a publisher, a job that he sometimes found a bit boring. So he set up an easel in his office and painted what he called “imagined landscapes”, inspired by the East Anglian countryside where he had worked as a land boy during WW2.

His landscapes are typically open countryside populated with tiny figures and steam engines.
