Bacon, Freud, Kossoff, Andrews, Auerbach, Kitaj
Working in postwar Britain, the artists of the ‘School of London’ rejected contemporary art’s preoccupation with abstraction and conceptualism in favour of the human figure and everyday landscape. Drawn primarily from the Tate in London, this exhibition highlights the work of six of the leading artists who revolutionised and reinvigorated figurative painting in the later 20th century: Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Leon Kossoff, Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, and R.B. Kitaj.
