JASPER JOHNS: REGRETS
12 September - 14 December 2014
Don’t miss this display of major new works by Jasper Johns, one of the world’s greatest living artists.
Regrets is a haunting series of ten paintings and drawings inspired by an old photograph of Lucian Freud posing in Francis Bacon’s London studio.
The Radical Nude
Egon Schiele: The Radical Nude brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career.
This exhibition is the first ever museum show in the UK devoted entirely to the artist.
It explores one of Schiele’s most vital and original subjects – his extraordinary drawings and watercolours of male and female nudes.
Jack of Diamonds
18 September 2014 - 18 January 2015
A special display of eleven early 20th century Russian avant-garde paintings marking the importance of the Jack of Diamonds group, founded in Moscow in 1910.
The display includes works by Mikhail Larionov, Natalia Goncharova, Aristarkh Lentulov, Vladimir Burliuk, Olga Rozanova, and Alexandra Exter, all of whom – both men and women – were equally active Jack of Diamonds contributors.
CARVED Loom Pulley
