New Art Exhibitions

This fall, the choice of art exhibitions in London is exceptional.

It includes, among others, major retrospectives of two contemporary German artists (Anselm Kiefer and Sigmar Polke),  exhibitions involving two iconic British romantic artists of the 19th century (Turner and Constable), a show on Dutch old master Rembrandt and another one on the most well known Austrian figurative painting of the 20th century Egon Schiele.  Finally, this season features also a captivating exhibition at the Barbican capturing architecture through photography paired with a fascinating program of films on the theme of the urban experience.  Just what we like.
