AN influential British artist inspired by Ronda’s beauty is to have his work showcased in a new exhibition.

David Bomberg lived in the Spanish mountain town from 1934­-35 and from 1956 until just before his death in 1957, and painted some of his greatest work there.

His complex geometric compositions which combine Cubism, Futurism and striking use of colour got him expelled from the Slade School of Art because of their unconventionality.

The display at Waterhouse & Dodd in London runs from May 9 until June 2.

Bomberg’s previous exhibition of Ronda-inspired work was described by The Week as ‘outstanding’ and ‘extraordinary’.

The exhibition also features work from artists influenced by Bomberg, including Edward Middleditch, Edna Mann and Dennis Creffield.
