Damien Hirst  No Love Lost: Blue Paintings The Wallace Collection




The Wallace Collection is pleased to announce an exhibition of 25 new paintings by Damien Hirst including two triptychs, being shown in the UK for the first time. ‘No Love Lost: Blue Paintings by Damien Hirst’ marks the artist’s return to the solitary practice of painting. Created between 2006 and 2008, these paintings represent a radical departure from the artist’s established working practice.

Since the start of his career, Hirst has challenged the boundaries of art and what it means to be an artist. The paintings in ‘No Love Lost’ bear witness to a bold new direction in his work; a series of paintings that, in the artist’s words are “deeply connected to the past.” Their exhibition at the Wallace Collection, arguably the most intimate national museum in the world, is significant. In contrast to the white walls of a contemporary gallery, Hirst has opted to present these works in a classical context, surrounded by Old Master paintings in the great European tradition at the Wallace Collection.
