The first exhibition of the New English in 1886 immediately
established the NEAC as a strong voice. During the entire
20th Century, in spite of waves of movements that pulled
the art world in many directions, the club’s artists held to
their commitment to figurative art.
The 2012 Open Exhibition is now closed However, Members' works

Paul R. Gildea and Charles Rake

of the NEAC.
The New English Movement
The New English represents the very
best of contemporary British figurative painting.
It is one of the foremost exhibiting art societies. There are about 70 members,
half of whom are women artists. Figurative painting
includes all painting that is based on nature
- on representation of the visual world.
Our members are all leading contemporary
UK artists producing
fine original art. Most members of the New
English are represented on this site. You can
find out about their work and lives and see
some samples of their work. A large number
of the artists have original art and other
art related items for sale. These items can
be found at the NEAC
Trading Company shop.
The New English Art Club website
gives you the opportunity to view the work of
many of the finest British artists working in
the figurative way - and through links, to a large
number of artists beyond the Club's membership.
