Hoyland painting voted 10th most popular

Hoyland’s 1981 painting ‘Memory Mirror’ has been chosen by the British public for the UK’s biggest and most democratic art exhibition, Art Everywhere, which is taking place on over 30,000 billboards and outdoor sites across the country from 21 July to 31 August 2014. It was voted the 10th most popular work on this year’s shortlist, just behind his closest friend Patrick Caulfield’s work, ‘Pottery’. ‘Memory Mirror’ has even been spotted at Gatwick Airport. The original painting has just been re-hung and is currently on show to the public at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. For the complete top ten in the Art Everywhere project, see below:
