A ROOM dedicated to the work of the late artist Peter Brook has opened at a Huddersfield art gallery.
Owner of AC Gallery, Mike Baggs, said demand for the Brighouse artist’s paintings was growing.
He said: “There’s always been a demand for his work and since he passed away just a year ago it has carried on so that’s why we decided to open the room dedicated to his work.
“He’s been very popular since 2007 when his work was featured in the Tate gallery diary.
“He’s counted amongst big names like Henry Moore and Francis Bacon.”
Peter’s daughter Alison Booth joined Mike at the weekend to open the specially dedicated room at the Byram Street gallery.
Mike said: “The amount of space we have set aside at the gallery is a tribute to Peter and his work.”
Peter’s paintings are renowned for their depictions of Pennine landscapes, often with snow falling.
They show a nostalgic view of a fast-disappearing era of mills, stone walls and hill farms.
And many of the former art teacher’s paintings feature himself and his dog Shep.
