With the second lockdown, the venue is launching an interactive virtual tour of the exhibition, and the exhibition dates are being extended from December 31 to January 31.

Spokeswoman Jenny Ross said: “His paintings are beautiful, dramatic and highly collectible, often created for album covers, for rock legends such as Yes, Rick Wakeman. ASIA and Steve Hackett.

“Alongside their album covers he also designed their logos, as well as logos for Virgin Records, Tetris, Psygnosis and many others altogether giving him a worldwide profile and following. Trading Boundaries is home to the only gallery in the world dedicated to the work of Roger Dean. Enjoy the largest ever display of rarely seen original paintings, including the featured image Aglow recently used on the Yes – The Royal Affair Tour – Live From Vegas album cover, plus drawings and sketches, as well as fine art limited edition prints, shown over two floors of the newly refurbished showrooms and dedicated gallery spaces.”

The hope is to reopen in December.

“Roger’s paintings of landscapes are famous for their original take on the natural world, often with intense colour and extraordinary rock formations. This unique vision led to a recent collaboration with Italian fashion house Maison Valentino with print and embroidered versions of his paintings incorporated by into their 2020 pret-a-porter spring/summer menswear collection, taking him into the world of fashion, in addition to music, computer games, film and architecture.”
