This highly focused exhibition of thirty six paintings and fifty three drawings presents Philip Guston’s last decade of abstraction. The rugged forms and bravado brushstrokes are imbued with figurative possibilities, and the limited palette of gray black, salmon pink and verdant green have a prescient power, later revealed in Guston’s final and explosive figurative works. […]

What is the difference between a museum survey show, showcasing New York’s art scene between 1950 and 1970 and a viewing of a private collection spanning the same period? I would say the answer probably lies in the unabashed passion and freewheeling initiative of the collector, particularly if that collector is Reinhard Onnasch. Let’s face […]

“Paris is a gigantic work to be consulted, a species of encyclopaedia. The shops, for example, have their language, there are shops that are like pages of newspapers or like the voice of an encyclopaedia- there are cheese shops that have on display hundreds of cheeses, all different, each with its name attached. A triumph […]

Thomas Keane asks just how good is Ron Mueck really? Pretty good, actually! An exhibition of hyper-realist sculptor Ron Mueck is well-timed. Emerging in the mid-1990s under the patronage of Charles Saatchi – at that time when it was Saatchi’s prerogative to make lists of What’s-Hot-and-What’s-Not – Mueck is to all intents and purpose […]
