If you are in Paris, or can jump on the eurostar, get yourself to Howard Hodgkin’s wonderful exhibition at The Gagosian Gallery on the rue de Ponthieu.
The exhibition has been extended until Saturday August 23.
Richly coloured and textured works produced between London, Normandy, and Bombay represent vibrant traces of location and experience—transcriptions of everyday encounters and memories.
4 rue de Ponthieu
A pre-view of a painting that I am working on.
Whilst taking photographs for a book that I have illustrated, from the viewing gallery of The Shard, I snapped this brave window cleaner abseiling from an unbelievable height.
I just had to paint him, with the most stunning view along The Thames, to Canary Wharf and beyond.
A wonderful exhibition of Dame Laura Knight’s paintings and drawings at The National Portrait Gallery.
Laura painted women in the work place – in maternity wards, factories, dancers back stage, circus performers behind the scenes and British Service Women.
She was the official artist at the Nuremberg Trials.
Her life in Cornwall plays a part in the recently released film ‘Summer in February’ – a fabulous film about Sir Alfred Munnings and a group of Bohemian artists called the Lamorna Group, set in Cornwall in the early 20th century.
Laura Knight Portraits is at the National Portrait Gallery, London
11th July – 13th October
Summer in February is in cinemas throughout the UK
