Though she kept a low profile, Prunella Clough (1919–1999) was one of the most important artists working in Britain in the second half of the twentieth century.

Initially known for social-realist depictions of labour and industry, Clough achieved a breakthrough around 1960, inaugurating four decades of enigmatic, unpredictable and allusive post-modern abstraction.

42 Carlton Place will show around twenty works, dates spanning the ‘60s through the ‘90s.
