Brotherhood of Ruralists
A group of self-proclaimed ruralist painters "from the city who moved to the country" sharing broadly similar values: Peter Blake and his wife Jann Haworth, David Inshaw, Graham and Ann Arnold, and Graham and Annie Ovenden. They formed in 1975. The group were inspired by ideas of an English pastoral tradition. "We admire Samuel Palmer, Stanley Spencer, Thomas Hardy, Elgar, cricket, English landscape, the Pre-Raphaelites…". Blake, Haworth and Inshaw left the group in the early 1980s.
