London Calling: Bacon, Freud, Kossoff, Andrews, Auerbach, and Kitaj
July 26-November 13, 2016

Between the 1940s and 1980s, when contemporary art was dominated by abstraction, conceptualism, and minimalism, a group of painters in London doggedly pursued the depiction of the human figure and everyday landscape, forging startling new approaches and styles. Drawn largely from the unrivaled holdings of the Tate in London, this is the first major exhibition in the U.S. to consider the work of six of the leaders of this “School of London” - Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Leon Kossoff, Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, and R. B. Kitaj - providing a timely reassessment of their extraordinary achievement.
