His influence can be seen in the work of Leon Kossoff and Frank Auerbach, who both attended his evening classes at Borough Polytechnic. Between 1929 and 1938 Bomberg painted a series of intimate and powerful portraits of his wife Lilian, which are notable for their use of vigorous brushstrokes. This painting will form a key component in the gallerys major exhibition of his work next year.
From the collection of Bill Weston and Madeleine Gantley
