Leon Kossoff: A Life in Painting




Annely Juda Fine Art, Mitchell-Innes & Nash, and L.A. Louver present Leon Kossoff: A Life in Painting, a major touring retrospective of paintings by seminal British artist Leon Kossoff (1926 – 2019) that will open in London in September 2021 and travel to New York and Los Angeles in early 2022.

Comprising 58 works, this touring show will be the first posthumous and largest exhibition of Kossoff’s paintings in a commercial setting to date, and coincides with the publication of Leon Kossoff: Catalogue Raisonné of the Oil Paintings to be released in September 2021 by Modern Art Press. The exhibition is curated by Andrea Rose, former Director of Visual Arts at the British Council and editor of the catalogue raisonné.

Leon Kossoff: A Life in Painting will be the third collaborative exhibition of works by Leon Kossoff organized in partnership between Annely Juda Fine Art (London), Mitchell-Innes & Nash (New York) and L.A. Louver (Venice, CA). Previous travelling exhibitions co-presented by the three galleries include Leon Kossoff: Recent Works 1999 – 2010 (2010-2011) and Leon Kossoff: London Landscapes (2013-2014).

Leon Kossoff is recognised as one of the world’s greatest Post-War figurative painters with an appreciation of life’s everyday activities, finding poignancy and beauty in seemingly mundane urban settings.

Together with the artists Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach, Michael Andrews, and R.B. Kitaj, Kossoff became known in the late 1970s as part of the “School of London.”
