Albert Herbert

Albert Herbert (1925-2008) was an artist with a powerful and original poetic vision. For five decades he consistently painted surprising and dream-like images-these seemingly naïve yet sophisticated paintings were the result of his life-long journey exploring 'what lies beneath the surface of the mind'.

The exhibition Remembering Albert Herbert included paintings, works on paper and etchings. Some works from this memorial exhibition are shown in these pages, along with works selected from other past exhibitions. 

Links to the obituaries about the artist published in The Times, The Independent and The Guardian, can be found on the gallery News page in the May 2008 entry.

Illustrated catalogues of Albert Herbert's past exhibitions with the Gallery are still available (click on the Biography link below). Paintings and works on paper by Albert Herbert are available to purchase from the gallery: view a further selection here or contact us to arrange to view works.
