Walter Sickert is recognised as one of the most important artists of the 20th century, having helped shape modern British art as we know it. With ties to renowned painters from James Abbott McNeill Whistler to Edgar Degas, he strengthened the artistic connections between Britain and France and continues to influence contemporary painters to this very day.

The first major retrospective of Sickert at Tate in over 60 years, this exhibition explores how he had an often radical, distinctive approach to setting and subject matter. From working off detailed sketches to taking inspiration from news photography, these were the tools he used to depict his vision of everyday life.

A former actor, he had a flair and fascination for all things theatrical, including performers in music halls crafted on canvas, and nude portraits staged in intimate, domestic settings. His imagination was also fuelled by current events including the rise of celebrity culture, and he used this to create compelling narratives.

Much like the man, his art was complex. Creative and colourful, his body of work was ever-changing and can be interpreted in different ways. His own self-portraits, for example, showcase how he evolved throughout his career – from his beginnings as an actor and artistic apprentice, to becoming one of the most gifted and influential artists of his time.

His life was short, his work prolific, and his legacy immortal.

A painter, draughtsman, architect, archaeologist, and poet, Raphael captured in his art the human and the divine, love and friendship, learning and power.

In his brief career, spanning just two decades, Raphael shaped the course of Western culture like few artists before or since.

This exhibition, one of the first ever to explore Raphael's complete career, looks at his celebrated paintings and drawings as well as his work in architecture, poetry, and design for sculpture, tapestry and prints.

With loans from the Louvre, National Gallery of Art, Washington, the Prado Museum, Uffizi Museum and the Vatican Museum this is an unprecedented opportunity to see the breadth of Raphael’s skill, creativity, and ingenuity. Further Information www.nationalgallery.org.uk

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

Tate Modern London

 

Surrealism was always international. This ground-breaking exhibition opening at Tate Modern this week reveals the broad scope of this radical movement, moving beyond the confines of a single time or place. Based on extensive research undertaken by Tate and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, it spans 60 years and 50 countries to show how Surrealism inspired and united artists around the globe, from centres as diverse as Buenos Aires, Cairo, Lisbon, Mexico City, Prague, Seoul and Tokyo. Expanding our understanding of Surrealism as never before, Tate Modern shows how this dynamic movement took root in many places at different times, offering artists the freedom to challenge authority and imagine a new world.

Initially trained in theatre design, Himid is known for her innovative approaches to painting and to social engagement. She has been pivotal in the UK since the 1980s for her contributions to the British Black arts movement, making space for the expression and recognition of Black experience and women’s creativity. Over the last decade, she has earned international recognition for her figurative paintings, which explore overlooked and invisible aspects of history and of contemporary everyday life.
