It includes many of his iconic war photographs – including images from Vietnam, Northern Ireland and more recently Syria. But it also focuses on the work he did at home in England, recording scenes of poverty and working class life in London’s East End and the industrial north. Van Gogh and Britain 27 March to 11 August Van Gogh and Britain presents the largest collection of Van Gogh’s paintings in the UK for nearly a decade. Some of his most famous works will be brought together from around the world – including Shoes, Starry Night on the Rhône, L’Arlésienne, and two works he made while a patient at the Saint-Paul Asylum, At Eternity’s Gate and Prisoners Exercising. They will be joined by the very rarely lent Sunflowers from London’s National Gallery. The exhibition also looks at the British artists who were inspired by Van Gogh, including Francis Bacon, David Bomberg, and the young Camden Town painters. It shows how his vision set British artists on the road to modern art. TATE MODERN BANKSIDE SE1 9TG 020 7887 8888 Dorothea Tanning To 9 June 2019 Over a seven-decade career, Dorothea Tanning pushed the boundaries of surrealism. The first major retrospective of Tanning’s work in the UK since her death in 2012 at the age of 101, this exhibition will tell the story of Tanning’s seven-decade career. Tanning wanted to depict‘unknown but knowable states’: to suggest there was more to life than meets the eye. In the 1940s, she married fellow painter Max Ernst and they moved to the Arizona desert. Pierre Bonnard The Colour of Memory To 6 May 2019 This is the first major exhibition of Pierre Bonnard’s work in the UK since the much-loved show at Tate 20 years ago. It will allow new generations to discover Bonnard’s unconventional use of colour, while surprising those who think they already know him. The exhibition concentrates on Bonnard’s work from 1912, when colour became a dominant concern, until his death in 1947.
