William Scott
Form – Colour – Space

Verey Gallery

10th November 2016 – 31st March 2017

William Scott (1913-1989) was a British painter of international renown who produced an extraordinary body of work over the course of a career spanning decades.  Whether concerned with still life, landscape or the female nude, he moved effortlessly between abstraction and figuration. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to explore Scott’s still life practice, with works from private collections, some never exhibited before, shown alongside the Eton College lithograph White Bowl, Black Pan on Brown, 1970.  On show are paintings, drawings and prints, as well as a rare opportunity to see a number of the simple 
kitchen objects he used to explore form, colour and space.

Education, Education, Education: 500 years of learning at Eton College

Tower Gallery

10th November 2016 – 31st March 2017

The exhibition draws on the rich holdings of Eton College Library and the College Archives and traces the development of Eton from its beginnings to the modern, vibrant school it is today, with a particular focus on education and learning, and the impact of the Public Schools Act of 1868.The exhibition is divided into four sections, each focussing on a different aspect of the classroom, and highlighting changes following the Public Schools Act. These sections examine methods of teaching; the curriculum; school books and their use and personalisation by boys and others; and the Pote family of publishers who produced school books for Eton for over two centuries.
