David Inshaw's most famous painting 'The Badminton Game' is held in the collection of Tate Britain. It was painted over 30 years ago during his time as one of the Ruralists, a group of seven artists who in March 1975 decided to move from the city to the country and form the Brotherhood of Ruralists. Each shared a desire to understand and paint the elements of nature, combined with literary and musical influences.
In 1983 David Inshaw left the Ruralists and has continued to work and exhibit in his own right.
His work is sought after by collectors from around the world. The Fine Art Society
is currently showing David's latest work in a major exhibition to celebrate his 70th birthday - 17th April - 9th May 2013
