A new exhibition at Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery will celebrate the centenary of Mexborough artist Edgar Holloway, who was born in 1914.

The Art of a Lifetime will bring together more than 100 works, including watercolours, drawings, etchings, and engravings from the artist’s estate and private collections.

The works on display will chart the development of Holloway’s work from his early years spent producing etchings of the countryside around Doncaster, which he sold from his father’s framing shop on Copley Road, to his later years when he was based in Ditchling Common in Sussex, living in a house designed by Eric Gill. He died in 2008.

The exhibition, which has been organised by Holloway’s widow Jennifer, runs from April 5 to June 14.
