Maggi Hambling: A Purity of Vision

Celebrated artist Maggi Hambling has been central to the story of painting in this country for decades. In this specially commissioned film shot at her studio in Suffolk, Maggi celebrates the work of her father, the visionary Suffolk artist Harry Hambling (1902–98), and the long-awaited publication of his book A Suffolk Eye, which brings together Harry’s works for the first time. This tender and intimate conversation with Luke Syson, Director and Marlay Curator, The Fitzwilliam Musuem, is a praise song to Maggie’s father.

 

With special thanks to Maggi Hambling and Daphne Astor
