"Bill Jacklin: The Graphic Work 1961-2016" at the Royal Academy of Arts in London is the first ever retrospective of Bill Jacklin’s graphic work. It includes his experiments with etchings in the 1960’s through to monotypes newly created for this show.
The subjects Jacklin depicts range from intense studies of his dying father to joyous representations of his adopted home – New York, the city he moved to 30 years ago. His themes are people, light and movement, whether the bustling crowds of Grand Central Station or skaters in Central Park.
At the heart of Jacklin’s work is draughtmanship; as he explains, ‘it is the conduit through which I see the world’. Through drawing and experimenting with many different print techniques Jacklin captures the light and atmosphere of his subjects, always looking, he says, ‘for the magic’.

The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition of works from the estate of Avigdor Arikha. The artist, who died in 2010, worked mostly in Paris and occasionally in Israel.
The exhibition will consist of approximately twenty works in oil, watercolor, pastel, and sumi ink and depict the subjects for which the artist is well known: portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and nudes. Regardless of the medium all Arikha’s work is remarkable for its subtlety, spontaneity, and tonal beauty.

Whatever his subject Arikha would finish the work in one sitting and this immediacy infused the work with vitality, freshness, and uncommon luminosity.
