The exhibition of Scottish artist William Turnbull’s work, sculpture, paintings and drawing are displayed in the North Sketch Gallery and in the garden, curated by Clare Lilley, from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

William Turnbull, who died in November 2012, is one of the major figures of post-war British art. Born in Dundee in 1922, he began his career as an illustrator for D.C. Thomson, before joining the Royal Air Force in 1941, serving as a pilot in the Second World War. After the war, he studied painting and sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Art, before moving to Paris in 1948 where he had close contact with a circle of artists that included Fernand Léger, Alberto Giacometti and Constantin Brancusi.
