Over 80 paintings go on show in this retrospective of the Sudanese painter Ibrahim El-Salahi, charting the artist’s career over 50 years.

Ibrahim El-Salahi is a little known figure in Britain, but that is set to change with this retrospective at Tate Modern. A semi-figurative painter, whose influences are a combination of western and eastern traditions, El-Salahi studied at The Slade School of Art in the 1950s before returning to Sudan and becoming a founder of a group of painters known as the Khartoum School, one of the most influential art movements in Africa in the 1960s.

This exhibition charts the artist’s evolution, from his early interest in Pissarro and Braque, to his later fascination with traditional Sudanese art practices. It concludes with paintings made since his return to Britain in the 1990s.
