Tate Britain - All Too Human: Bacon, Freud and a Century of Painting Life
Exhibition Dates: 28 February 2018 - 27 August 2018
Celebrating painters in Britain who found new ways of depicting people, places, feelings and relationships, All Too Human features London-based artists from the second half of the 20th century including Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon.
It also brings together rarely seen works by their contemporaries, including Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, R.B. Kitaj, Leon Kossoff, Paula Rego and F.N. Souza. Despite differences in approach and style, these artists remained loyal to the intimate representation of human figures and their surroundings.
All Too Human shows how this spirit in painting was fostered by the previous generation, from Walter Sickert to David Bomberg, as well how contemporary artists continue to show the tangible reality of life through paint.
