Join the AFA and Angela Westwater, co-founder of Sperone Westwater, for breakfast and an exclusive tour of Malcolm Morley: Tally-ho.

Malcolm Morley: Tally-ho is Sperone Westwater’s sixth solo show devoted to the late London-born artist, who is widely hailed as among the most pioneering figures of his generation.  Over the course of his distinguished, five decades-long career, Malcolm Morley (1931-2018) defied stylistic characterization.   His work moved by turns through so-called abstract, realist, neo-romantic, and neo-expressionist painterly modes, while being attentive to his biographical experiences.

The show is comprised of 13 new paintings dating from 2015 through 2018, before his passing in June at the age of 86.   The newest body of work expands upon familiar Morley motifs and introduces medieval knights in armor set alongside imagery from disparate historical periods including Viking ships, medieval castles, and lighthouses.  Vintage canvases from earlier decades contextualize the new paintings and demonstrate Morley’s innovative artistic achievements.
