R.B.Kitaj: Obsessions, The Art of Identity
Visit and Talk | Jewish Museum London
Thursday 6 June 2013 - 14:30 until 16:00
R. B. Kitaj (1932–2007) was one of the most significant painters of the post-war period. His work defied the trend in abstract art prevalent in the 1960s and brought him to the forefront of British figurative painting. The Jewish Museum London and Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, concurrently present the only UK showing from the major R.B. Kitaj retrospective displayed at the Jewish Museum Berlin. We will have an illustrated talk in the Jewish Museum’s auditorium before viewing the exhibition, which investigates the artist’s Jewish identity.
This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
