The Human Form

Francis Plummer Distant Thoughts

 11th - 30th May 2020

 Darnley Fine Art is delighted to be hosting a selling exhibition of paintings by artist Francis Plummer.
Location: Online
These stunning paintings all depict the human form using egg tempera and have been kept by the artist since he painted them in the 1950's. 


With an obvious flare for the creative Plummer was enrolled at The Royal Academy Schools between 1949-1954. His success there not only earned him a RA Diploma but also the coveted Leverhulme scholarship.


Plummer began work as a medical illustrator for Guys Hospital designing graphics, then went on to establish himself for his artwork alone and was commissioned by the National Trust as well as appearing in collaborative exhibitions at the Grafton Engineering Private exhibitions, Leighton House Galleries, London Royal Academy Diploma Galleries and the London Leicester Galleries.


In 1975 a one man show of his landscape and figure paintings entitled To be Born Again was moved from a gallery in Middlesbrough to the Alywn Gallery in Mayfair and was followed some years later by an exhibition at The Minories in Colchester.
