The Art of Moonlight

A selling exhibition of paintings and watercolours capturing the beauty and atmospheric effect of moonlight.

Artists such as Henry Pether were mesmerised by moonlight. Their landscapes attempted to capture its endless manifestations within the boundaries of materiality, circumscribed to the limits of their materials in oil and watercolour of pale blue, green and grey hues

They wanted to celebrate the natural beauty of the moon and the soft glow of it’s light. For many artists and poets, the moon represents an empathetic companion—a depiction of gazing at the moon might suggest tranquil solitude, or wistful longing for a distant friend, or the fleeting nature of love and pleasure.  The moon has a timeless appeal as a source of creative inspiration.
