Peter Newcombe Exhibition

An exhibition in the Inspiration Gallery at Abington Park Museum

10 November 2022 – 12 March 2023


In 1967 Newcombe first read John Clare’s Shepherd’s Calendar, originally published in 1827. Inspired by what he read, Newcombe spent the next year illustrating the calendar. Each drawing was created in the specific month, so it would truthfully reflect the month’s natural landscape. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see all 12 works in the collection.
