This week saw the launch in London of Ken Howard’s latest book – Ken Howard’s Switzerland. It was also the opening of his latest show – a fine exhibition of eighty paintings celebrating his 80th birthday. The exhibition at Richard Green Gallery, 147 New Bond Street, runs until 2nd February 2013 and is well worth seeing.
Ken Howard’s Switzerland is an account of his journeys, over the last few years, through Switzerland in the footsteps of JMW Turner RA.
Jürg Gabathuler, Ken’s friend, co-author and ‘fixer’ for the Swiss expeditions was also present and he has written an excellent account of the trips at gabathuler.co.uk
The day was a perfect excuse to get together with some of my plein air painting friends, look at some great paintings and enjoy a very fine hot chocolate on Piccadilly…
