About this book

Trees provide a wonderfully versatile subject for artists, not only in terms of the incredible diversity of form, character and colour they provide, whether individually or collectively, but also in terms of the wealth of association, myth, folklore, religious and symbolic significance which they have come to embody. In Britain, they have inspired artists from Gainsborough and Constable through to Paul Nash, the Neo-Romantics and the Ruralists.

'The arborealists' grew out of the exhibition Under the Greenwood: Picturing British Trees, held in 2013 at St. Barbe Museum & Art Gallery. Such was the impact of the show and the spirit of camaraderie engendered in a truly diverse group of artists that they took on a more permanent identity. Under the Arborealists' banner a loose association of artists, including such luminaries as David Inshaw, have come together for exhibitions in galleries across the south.
