One of the most popular paintings in our current exhibition is Peter Brook’s large canvas of Hannah Hauxwell Waving Goodbye. Hannah became a celebrity in the 1970s when Granada TV produced a series of progammes on her life at Low Birk Hatt Farm. Peter Brook did over 60 paintings of Hannah and Hannah Hauxwell Waving Goodbye was his favourite. He would never sell it whilst he was alive. Low Birk Hatt recently came up for sale and this article gives more information on Hannah’s story.
Peter Brook: Hannah Hauxwell ‘Waving Goodbye is part of ‘ A Decade in Hale’ exhibition being held to celebrate 10 years of Clark Art Gallery in Hale.
