Compton Verney is a historic country house in Warwickshire (in the English West Midlands) which is now home to a thriving art gallery. There’s a new exhibition opening there on 24 July, and in the wake of Eyjafjallajökull it couldn’t have been better timed.

Volcano: Turner to Warhol displays a rich and varied range of artistic responses to volcanoes and volcanic activity from the eighteenth century to the twenty-first, including works by Hokusai, Joseph Wright, Sir William Hamilton, J. M. W. Turner, and this Warhol chap. A selection of works from Iceland promise to be particularly interesting.

I hope to visit the exhibition over the summer and will post a review here when I do. In the meantime there is a detailed review in The Guardian here, and the exhibition home page is here.
