Leon Kossoff: A London Life




An exhibition of paintings and drawings by one of Britain’s most acclaimed living artists, Leon Kossoff, curated in partnership with Andrew Dempsey (curator and writer). The show will bring together masterworks from each period of the artist’s career, demonstrating the unwavering rigour, the nuance and the psychological intensity of his output.

The exhibition explores the artist’s working practice and his creative environment. The city of his birth, London has played a central role in his career and many cityscapes will be on display – from Willesden Junction to Christ Church, Spitalfields. Kossoff has spent over six decades working in North London and the show will draw attention to the subtle, often poignant relationship between his creative life and his surroundings.

His friends and family have also contributed to his vision and the exhibition will reflect on the relationship between the artist and his models. It will include oil paintings of his brother, Chaim, and his model and friend, Fidelma, long-standing subjects in Kossoff’s work. Together, these landscape and figure paintings will present an irrefutable argument for Leon Kossoff’s place in the canon of modern master painters.
