Visitors to the Tate Britain gallery between November 12th 2012 and February 17th 2013 will be able to see a display of artwork by the talented Ian Hamilton Findlay.

The late Scottish artist, who died in 2006, will be the subject of a new exhibition that focuses on his use of the neo-classical idiom and works in the medium of sculpture.

Juxtaposing neon, wood, stone and bronze sculptures with printed works on paper, the displayed pieces use metaphor and reference to explore a wide range of themes, including the beauty of nature and the changing seasons.

The exhibition is part of the BP British Art Displays series and is free for all to attend.
