Tate Modern presents the UK’s first major retrospective of Alberto Giacometti for 20 years
Celebrated as a sculptor, painter and draughtsman, Giacometti’s distinctive elongated figures are some of the most instantly recognisable works of modern art. This exhibition reasserts Giacometti’s place alongside the likes of Matisse, Picasso and Degas as one of the great painter-sculptors of the twentieth century. Through unparalleled access to the extraordinary collection and archive of the Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti, Paris, Tate Modern’s ambitious and wide-ranging exhibition brings together over 250 works. It includes rarely seen plasters and drawings which have never been exhibited before and showcases the full evolution of Giacometti’s career across five decades, from early works such as Head of a Woman [Flora Mayo]1926 to iconic bronze sculptures such as Walking Man I 1960.
Josie Eastwood Fine Art Exhibition
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.

British Art: Ancient Landscapes
Cost: Normal admission charges apply.
The British landscape has been a continual inspiration to artists across the centuries and particularly the landscapes shaped and marked by our distant ancestors. The megaliths, stone circles and chalk-cut hill figures that survive from Neolithic and Bronze Age times have stimulated many artists to make a response. In this major new exhibition curated by Professor Sam Smiles, these unique artistic responses have been brought together to create a new discussion. Featuring the work of some of the greatest names in British art from the last 250 years, see John Constable, JMW Turner, Eric Ravilious, John Piper, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Paul Nash, Richard Long, Derek Jarman and more, as their work records and reflects on some of our most treasured ancient landscapes.
