In 2019, The Lightbox will present a major retrospective of work by Cyril Mann. Cyril Mann: Painter of Light and Shadow will explore the full range of the artist's career, from the Solid Shadow paintings to his mature paintings of the nude. Mann was a painter dedicated to the effect of light, who struggled in isolation for much of his career. With works loaned from Piano Nobile, the exhibition will introduce Mann's work to a new audience, showcasing a rare talent in post-war British painting.
Cyril Mann: Painter of Light and Shadow will be open at The Lightbox, Woking, between 12 January and 31 March 2019. Piano Nobile's exhibition, Cyril Mann: The Solid Shadow Paintings, will be on display until 26 January 2019.
