Royal Academy, London

Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele

See rare and fragile drawings by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, offering intimate insights into their artistic relationship and differing creative processes. This extraordinary collaboration with the Albertina Museum in Vienna marks the centenary of both artists’ deaths.

This exhibition contains some adult content. Please ask a member of staff for further information.1918 was a seismic year in Vienna. As the Austro-Hungarian Empire crumbled, an intense period of creative vitality drew to an end with the deaths of two of its foremost artists. One was the preeminent and strikingly modern painter of fin-de-siècle Vienna, Gustav Klimt; the other the young, scandalous and prodigiously talented Egon Schiele. Both revelled in the immediacy of drawing, an ideal medium for exploring new ideas of modernity, subjectivity and the erotic.

Klimt / Schiele: Drawings is a unique opportunity to see extraordinary drawings produced by both artists, considered to be some of the 20th century’s most important works on paper. Among them are Klimt’s sketches for his seminal Beethoven Frieze, and unflinching self-portraits by Schiele, which due to their delicacy will not see the light of day again for many years. In around 100 portraits, allegories, landscapes and erotic nudes, prepare to encounter these two icons of early Modernism at their most raw and revealing.

Exhibition organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London and the Albertina Museum, Vienna.

Josie Eastwood Fine Art  Exhibition 

Josie has opened her new gallery in Longstock, Hampshire.  Well worth a detour to see it.

regular exhibitions – have a look at her website to see what is coming up next

Josie Eastwood Fine Art has a different formula to most galleries.

We hold four annual exhibitions which are hung around our home, with the intention of showing work of a wide range of artists and subject matter, within a relaxed environment.

The two main shows are in October and May, with a Little Picture Show in December and a Decorative two day sale in June. During the Spring Exhibition in May, sculptures and objects are also displayed around the garden.

Separately from the advertised shows we work with both private clients and interior designers – in the case of the former helping to build a collection of paintings; for the latter finding paintings to complement their own work.

Southampton City Art Gallery

Beneath the Surface: William Stott of Oldham and British Impressionism

William Stott of Oldham’s painting Le Passeur (The Ferryman) is considered a key moment in the breakthrough of British Art to naturalism and established Stott as one of the most progressive British artists of his day.

Secured for the British public with funds provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Art Fund (with a contribution from The Wolfson Foundation) and The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation, this painting is now being displayed in Southampton as part of a tour of UK galleries in partnership with Tate.

This exhibition will show Stott in the company of those who, like him, contributed to the development of British Naturalism and Impressionism and will also include examples of French Impressionism, drawn from Southampton’s permanent collection, to place British art of the 1880s and 1890s more broadly in a dialogue with French painting of that time. Shown alongside Le Passeur will be work by some of Stott’s contemporaries who were influenced by the move in painting toward rural Naturalism, illustrating what connects Stott to them at this moment in his career and what distinguishes his singular vision.
