Frank Auerbach, R.B. Kitaj, Paula Rego and Euan Uglow in Bacon, Freud and the School of London
This exhibition brings together a small group of painters from the London School, who were connected by ties of friendship and mutual admiration for the appearance and vulnerability of the body, with the city of London as their surrounding context. Through the depiction of the figure and their own everyday landscape, these artists conveyed the delicacy and vitality of the human condition while simultaneously developing new approaches and styles, reinventing their manner of representing life with pronounced individuality and imbuing painting with a rare intensity. The artists included in the exhibition are Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, David Bomberg, R.B. Kitaj, Leon Kossoff, Paula Rego and Euan Uglow.
