Painting Power: The Art of Terence Cuneo takes a fresh look at Cuneo’s amazing range through his portrayal of power.

Drawing on loan material from across the UK, to supplement the Science Museum Group’s already rich collection, the exhibition looks at his incredible drawings for the Ministry of Information during the Second World War; his well–loved railway paintings and posters; depictions of industrial power and process; and his portrayal of a dierent type of power – the benign power of sovereign and state.

It is curated by Science Museum Group Director, Ian Blatchford, and the Chief Curator of the National Railway Museum, Andrew McLean.

The exhibition is the Science Museum Group’s contribution to Hull’s tenure as UK City of Culture.

This is one of the most important bodies of work of any 20th century British artist. The chance to celebrate Cuneo’s influential life and work as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, drawing on incredible and varied collections including the Science Museum Group’s own, is a real privilege.” – Ian Blatchford, Science Museum Group director
