The Fine Art Society is currently displaying the works of artist Ethel Gabain. “A distinctive look” is the title of this equally distinctive show, taking place at the gallery’s London venue until January 3, 2018.

The Fine Art Society presents a new exhibition of Ethel Gabain’s characteristic lithographs. "A distinctive look” follows on from a successful show earlier this year that introduced her work to a new audience and re-established her reputation as one of the most skilled and engaging artist-printmakers of her generation. For this exhibit they have brought together lithographs of women, Gabain’s subject of choice, as well as some of her landscapes, early etchings and works inspired by her love of the theatre and the ballet. The variety of the works on show brings a sense of the artist’s passion for her subjects and for lithography, a medium that she mastered.

Founded in London in 1876 by a group of like-minded collectors led by William Longman, The Fine Art Society are art dealers with two premises, one on New Bond Street, Mayfair, occupied since 14th February 1876, and given a new entrance facade in 1881 by E.W.Godwin (1833–1886), the other in Dundas Street in Edinburgh’s New Town, where it has been since 1972. The gallery has for many years largely concentrated on British art and design from 1700 to the present day; with the Edinburgh premises specialising in Scottish art of the same period.

The exhibition is on view through January 3, 2018 at The Fine Art Society London 148 New Bond Street London W1S 2JT.
