The most comprehensive retrospective to date of the painter Sylvia Sleigh (1916–2010) presents works spanning more than sixty years. A broad selection has been made in order to showcase the totality and complexity of Sleigh’s artistic endeavour. In addition to portraits, the exhibition features a number of still lifes and landscapes, such as the rarely displayed paintings of statues in the park landscape near Crystal Palace in 1950s London. It is unusual for Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen to present the first retrospective of an artist, but today Sleigh’s position is particularly interesting for a younger generation of artists.
