This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at Ben Uri: Art. Identity. Migration

A major new exhibition reassessing the career of David Bomberg, including works never exhibited before in London.

More than 40 works are on display, representing significant periods of Bomberg’s career from his formative years as one of the Whitechapel Boys and his contribution to pre-war British Modernism, his work as a war artist and later graphic designer, through to his mature achievements as a landscape painter in Spain, Cyprus and Britain.

The influence of his evening-class tutor, Walter Sickert, is reflected in Bedroom Picture (1911-12) which was later reworked as the Vorticist-influenced At the Window (1919). Both works are included in the exhibition and are an example of a pairing or re-working that is one of its major themes.

Works from major institutions including Arts Council England, Tate, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Pallant House Gallery and The Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts will be on show alongside works from important private collections and from Ben Uri’s extensive collection of Bomberg’s works.
