Visit the Tryon Gallery

Your author spent yesterday afternoon browsing a handful of West London's private art galleries, and was particularly impressed by the exhibition by Johnny Morant currently being shown at the Tron Gallery.

Though Morant is the same age as your author, he possesses infinitely more talent. A London-based artist, celebrated for his interesting representations of light and space using oil paints. His paintings are rather London-centric - including scenes from the South Bank Book Market, the Market Coffee House, and Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, amongst others - and perhaps that was why they appealed, but they certainly possessed an intrinsic beauty.

The Tryon Gallery has been trading since 1959, and can be found in 7 Bury Street, SW1. It usually shows six to eight feature exhibitions a year, and Mr Morant's continues until 17th June. For more, visit www.tryon.co.uk


  1. Lady Tryon flitted around in royal circles, closish to Prince Charles. Dale, an Australian, also seemed to be a bit of a fashion expert, until her tragic early death. Any relation?

  2. I have no idea, but I would imagine so, given the location.

  3. That really is a stunning painting of Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, it completely captures the atmosphere of the place...

  4. Im in London this weekend and might go check this out! Great blog, really enjoyed reading it. Have bookmarked you and will check back regular. Please feel free to take a look at my blogs...
