Tate Britain: ALL TOO HUMAN BACON, FREUD AND A CENTURY OF PAINTING LIFE and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

All Too Human celebrates the painters in Britain who strove to represent human figures, their relationships and surroundings in the most intimate of ways.

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye (born 1977, London, UK) is a painter and writer of Ghanaian descent born in London, England, where she currently lives and works. She is represented by the Corvi-Mora Gallery in London and by the Jack Shainman Gallery in New York City. Image credit: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Coterie of Questions 

It features artists including Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon alongside rarely seen work from their contemporaries including Frank Auerbach and Paula Rego. Many of them lived or live in London, drawn to the multicultural capital from around the world. Three important works by Francis Bacon will be shown in the UK for the first time in at least three decades.

The exhibition also shows how this spirit in painting was fostered by the previous generation, from Walter Sickert to David Bomberg, and how contemporary artists continue to express the tangible reality of life through paint. The exhibition runs until 27th August 2018. Where: Millbank London SW1P 4RG  Plan your visit
