The EY Exhibition Cezanne

5 October 2022 – 12 March 2023

Tate Modern London

Paul Cezanne. The Basket of Apples, c. 1893. The Art Institute of Chicago, Helen Birch Bartlett Memorial Collection.

A career-spanning survey of a pivotal figure in modern art

 

‘With an apple, I will astonish Paris’, Cezanne once claimed. Leaving his native Aix-en-Provence for the French capital in his 20s, this is precisely what he did. Cezanne’s still lifes, landscapes and paintings of bathers were to give licence to generations of artists to break the rule book. The history of painting was never to be the same again.

Focusing on the many tensions and contradictions in Cezanne’s work, this exhibition seeks to understand the artist in his own context, as an ambitious young painter proudly from the Mediterranean South, yet eager to make it in metropolitan Paris. Featuring many works shown for the first time in the UK, the show will follow his struggle between seeking official recognition and joining the emerging impressionists before relentlessly pursuing his own unique language. We will witness an artist wrestling with what it means to be a modern painter while remaining deeply sceptical about the world he lived in, from political unrest to a continually accelerating way of life.

For the first time in the UK, we present an overview of Winslow Homer (1836–1910), the great American Realist painter who confronted the leading issues facing the United States, and its relationship with both Europe and the Caribbean world, in the final decades of the 19th century. 

Homer’s career spanned a turning point in North American history. He lived through the American Civil War and the abolition of slavery, so-called Reconstruction, and war with the last colonial European power in the Americas, Spain.

From his sketches of battle and camp life, to dazzling tropical views and darker restless seascapes, the works reflect Homer’s interest in the pressing issues of his time; conflict, race, and the relationship between humankind and the environment – issues still relevant for us today. 

After the war, Homer’s subject became the lives of Americans in the wake of the war and abolition with a focus on the lives of formerly enslaved African Americans.  

Homer travelled to France, England, the Bahamas, Cuba and Bermuda. In England, he painted scenes of heroism and resilience that he saw while staying in Cullercoats, a town on the North East coast. In the Caribbean, his paintings became more vivid as he painted the transparent turquoise waters and lush vegetation. His interest in conflict remained constant and he often explored the issue through painting the life and struggles of Black people.  

With more than fifty paintings, covering over forty years of Homer’s career, 'Winslow Homer: Force of Nature' is part of a programme of exhibitions that introduce major American artists to a UK and European audience and follows on from our exhibitions about George Bellows and the Ashcan painters, Frederic Church and Thomas Cole. 

Exhibition organised by the National Gallery and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Opening March 2022, Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear will be the first major
V&A exhibition to celebrate the power, artistry and diversity of masculine attire and
appearance. The show will trace how menswear has been fashioned and refashioned over the
centuries, and how designers, tailors and artists and their clients and sitters have
constructed and performed masculinity, and unpicked it at the seams.

Fashioning Masculinities will present around 100 looks and 100 artworks, displayed
thematically across three galleries. Contemporary looks by legendary designers and rising stars
will be displayed alongside historical treasures from the V&A’s collections and landmark loans:
classical sculptures, Renaissance paintings, iconic photographs, and powerful film and
performance. From looks by Harris Reed, Gucci, Grace Wales Bonner and Raf Simons, to
paintings by Sofonisba Anguissola and Joshua Reynolds, contemporary artworks by Robert
Longo and Omar Victor Diop, to an extract from an all-male dance performance by Matthew
Bourne’s New Adventures, the exhibition will showcase the variety of possible masculinities
across the centuries from the Renaissance to the global contemporary. Outfits worn by
familiar faces will be interspersed throughout, from Harry Styles, Billy Porter and Sam Smith,
to David Bowie and Marlene Dietrich. Innovative creations and diverse representations will
highlight and celebrate the multiplicities of masculine sartorial self-expression, dressing
beyond the binary. Further Information www.vam.ac.uk
