SALON, in collaboration with Mallett and Dreweatts 1759, is delighted to announce Dancing with Colour, a selling exhibition of paintings by the British artist Berenice Sydney (1944 – 1983). 

This show, remarkably the first presentation of her work staged at a major public art gallery in over thirty years, is comprised of a selection of oil paintings and works on paper that reflect Berenice’s – as she was professionally known – signature lyrical and highly animated graphic style. Her paintings, notable for their fluency of form and movement, are inscribed with her passion for music and dance – she studied classical ballet, guitar and flamenco – as well as the sense of liberation and freedom of expression which prevailed in Britain during the 1960s.
