20120303181814-hpimage Portrait of the Artist: Freud’s Irresistible Dualism   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

''The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.'' The paradox, as defined by the late artist himself, is a focal quality contained in the exhibition presented at the National Portrait Gallery; Freud’s portraits are beguilingly close to their subjects --  “the paint is the person” – and yet at the same time, uncanny, strange. This impressive exhibition is packed with beauties of all shapes and sizes - from works on a smaller scale, such as the w... [more]

Not the catchiest title perhaps, but Kupferstichkabinett is certainly a memorable show.  Referring to the collections of the German aristocracy which in turn lead to the more accessible print and drawing rooms in museums, this show draws on the past to prove that drawing is very much alive and kicking in contemporary art. Set up like a museum, with works densely hung on dark green walls, the show turns the White Cube into a museum of modern drawing, exploring its pivotal role in the pra... [more]

Freud3 An American in Paris - visiting Lucien Freud's L'Atelier Show

Lucien Freud at the Centre Pompidou The Lucien Freud show at the Centre Pompidou is a rare opportunity to see a large body of the painter’s work, especially a large body of his fairly recent work which is, to say the least, fleshy. The show is divided into four parts. First, as you enter the exhibition, is the Interior/Exterior room, which features images of the artist’s studio and various outside subjects like views of factories and buildings as well as amazing floral/vegetation pictures. Next i... [more]

Freud3 On Lucian Freud   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

I came away from the Lucien Freud exhibition, L’Atelier, at the Centre Pompidou very relieved that I was having dinner with my friend Anne, rather than Freud himself. This small exhibition of Freud’s work (painted in his London studio) was intense, emotionally challenging, and ultimately quite difficult. I admire the force of Freud’s painting, the power of his brushstroke and the transparency of his representational process; I find his intellectual engagement with the history of painting t... [more]

  The guest curator, Paula Rego, has chosen the title Thresholds for this selection of prints, drawings and photographs that date from the beginning of the 20th century. Rego claims that the link between the 50 works on display is one of anticipation, containing an element of suspense. The people illustrated are “on the brink of something.” This is the fourth Whitechapel exhibition in a series sponsored by the British Council, which has an extensive collection of British art. For 75 years th... [more]
