Dilmus Hall

1896 - 1987 (Georgia)

Homegrown artist, whose war-time experiences led to the production of concrete sculptures, graphic paintings and countless clean-lined narrative sketches. Nine of these characterful morality tales and biblical episodes are featured in the exhibition and form the artist’s first UK installation.
