In partnership with Cartwright Hall, Bradford Museums and Galleries, Ben Uri Gallery and Museum is delighted to announce the exhibition, Rothenstein’s Relevance, examining the work of Sir William Rothenstein (1872–1945) and his circle. It will be Ben Uri’s first exhibition on this hugely influential figure and is a partial tour of the Bradford exhibition, ‘From Bradford to Benares: the art of Sir William Rothenstein’ (7 March–12 July 2015), reconfigured for its London showing. It comprises approximately 40 works including paintings, works on paper and archival material and aims to re-examine the significance, influence and continuing importance of Rothenstein’s artistic achievements.
