Claire Partington at the Walker, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool

London-based ceramic artist Claire Partington is showing at the Walker for the first time. The Walker’s collections have inspired this major new commission, presented by the Contemporary Art Society. 

Creating a strong link to the North West, the catalyst was the oil painting “Mr and Mrs William Atherton” by Arthur Devis (1712-1787). Partington expands the domestic scene, creating a thought-provoking, earthenware figure group. The new work is on display with historic ceramics from our collections, which inspired it.


Location : Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool
