A TALE OF MOTHER’S BONES
GRACE PAILTHORPE, REUBEN MEDNIKOFF AND THE BIRTH OF PSYCHOREALISM
An exhibition of paintings and drawings paired with psychoanalytic interpretation, A Tale of Mother’s Bones tells the remarkable story of a unique artistic and personal collaboration between Dr Grace Pailthorpe, a surgeon, and Reuben Mednikoff, an artist and designer. Pailthorpe and Mednikoff met in London in 1935, and moved to Port Isaac in Cornwall where they made some of their most wildly experimental artworks

Showing across both our venues, this is the first exhibition to bring together Pailthorpe and Mednikoff’s extraordinary drawings and paintings, with their often challenging interpretations, and features more than 90 works spanning nearly four decades. 

A Tale of Mother’s Bone is curated by Hope Wolf (University of Sussex), with the De La Warr Pavilion and Camden Arts Centre.
