Exhibition 'Early Philip Sutton' in The Red House

The first sale of one of Philip Sutton’s pictures through a commercial gallery was in 1955 to Peter Pears, who was initially drawn to Sutton’s rich and vibrant colour palate. In total Pears and Britten collected seven oil paintings by Sutton and these will be displayed together for the first time in Britten’s Library. The story of the connection between Pears, Britten and Sutton will be illustrated further with drawings and correspondence from the Britten-Pears Foundation archive.
