There are so many good shows on this year in London, it’s hard to keep up and impossible to see everything. I’ve already seen the ‘Inventing Impressionism’ at the National Gallery which is really fabulous and exceeds expectations. However here’s my hit-list of exhibitions I want to see before the Summer holidays (ie when I have to drag my children with me!). This is in my order of priority.
So Singer Sargent was the archetypal posh boy who knew everyone but, man, could he paint. He manages to make each brushstroke look effortless as though it just happened to land in the right place. Genius.
An under-rated American painter who’s work moves in and out of abstraction but is always beautiful.
If you are interested in fashion, this is one not to miss. It sounds quite debauched though, so definitely one for term time…
This WW2 watercolour artist’s work shows beauty in the unexpected.
