Compton Verney’s summer exhibition will take you on a fascinating and stimulating journey that looks at the ways in which our visual perceptions have been explored by artists.

Joining the dots between Georges Seurat’s pointillist paintings and the psychedelic Op Art genius of Bridget Riley, Compton Verney will open this year’s summer season by exploring how artists see the world differently in one of the first exhibitions of its kind in the UK. Opening in July Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception focuses on one of the most fascinating threads running through the past 150 years of art history – the many ways in which visual perception and the interaction between brain and eye has been creatively exploited.

The exhibition will feature ninety works ranging from painting, prints and drawings to sculpture and light-based works, including items sourced from public and private collections across the UK as well as exciting new commissions created especially for the exhibition.
