David Hockney – The Complete Early Etchings 1961-1964

As Tate Britain unveils its highly anticipated David Hockney retrospective, an intimate display in St. James’s takes a look at the much less trodden ground of the iconic British artist’s early etchings. Far from simply jumping on the Hockney bandwagon however, this show at Hazlitt Holland Hibbert features a version of every single print that...
Hayden Kays - Artist in Residence for Cubitts Glasses

Hayden Kays – Artist in Residence for Cubitts Glasses

It seems there aren’t many things that can’t have an artist in residence programme attached to it nowadays. The latest to catch London’s eye however, proves that some can be a real success, even in the most extraordinary of places – perhaps a piece of blank fabric, carried by almost everyone in their pocket or...
An interview with South African Graphic Artist Jamy van Zyl

An interview with South African Graphic Artist Jamy van Zyl

Jamy van Zyl’s art is one that truly speaks to the soul. He reconnects disparate youthful desires and manias, and his art is not only aesthetically pleasing but allows the gap of personal experience to be bridged, and encourages true flavour to flourish. His pains and joys are so evident on his canvases that it...

North & South: Ruffians Marylebone Turns Art Gallery

When Ruffians Barbers opened in Marylebone this spring, it was always destined that the impressive space would be used for more than beard  and barnet trims.

Lucien Freud - A Closer Look at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark - A touching insight

Lucien Freud – A Closer Look at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark – A touching insight

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark recently showed a collection of etchings by one of the greatest British artists of the last century – Lucien Freud.

Titian to Canaletto – Drawing in Venice at the Ashmolean in Oxford

Titian to Canaletto – Drawing in Venice at the Ashmolean in Oxford

Venetian art, from a historical perspective, has a reputation for being bright, bold and dramatic. Many of the best Renaissance artists emerged from the palazzo filled lagoon, and helped push drama in to art to forge the Baroque. Yet the latest show at the brilliant Ashmolean Museum in Oxford starts by claiming that drawing has...
The Amazing World of MC Escher, Dulwich Picture Gallery

The Amazing World of MC Escher, Dulwich Picture Gallery

Organisation of the work of MC Escher is a highly intriguing concept, and one that I imagine the curators of this touring show took extremely cautiously, as the work itself defiantly avoids classification. At the start of the exhibition, on now at Dulwich Picture Gallery, the introductory panel states that Escher is considered a “one...

Goya’s Witches and Old Women Album – reunited at the Courtauld

  Francisco Goya’s works of art evoke violently different reactions in their viewers, but whether you find them haunting or enchanting there is no division of opinion on his skill as one of history’s most unique and talented portrayers of the human form, with an uncanny ability to imprint on his figures, especially the tiny...

Tracey Emin - The Last Great Adventure is You

Tracey Emin – The Last Great Adventure is You

  We are told by Tracey Emin that ‘The Last Great Adventure is You’ is “…about rites of passage, of time and age, and the simple realisation that we are always alone”. It seems only fitting therefore that the White Cube displays Tracey Emin’s latest exhibition. Its South Galleries provide a home for Emin, it’s...
Quentin Blake’s Inside Stories - Last Chance To See

Quentin Blake’s Inside Stories – Last Chance To See

  “The essence of drawing is in imagining what you are drawing.” Quentin Blake   For anyone of a certain age, the name Quentin Blake is inextricably associated with Roald Dahl. His fun, expressive caricatures are as memorable as Dahl’s evocative titles. In this very special exhibition, the man behind the illustrations opens the doors...
Egon Schiele - The Radical Nude

Egon Schiele – The Radical Nude

  In the space of 9 years he dropped out of Vienna’s Academy of Fine Arts, created hundreds of finished works on paper, was thrown in jail for his art, succeeded Klimt as Vienna’s most prolific artist, and died tragically of Spanish flu at the height of his career aged only 28.
