Recent British Painting National Gallery

Recent British Painting National Gallery

This exhibition has been hanging since the beginning of February. It is unquestionably, one of the most significant to come to NZ in recent years. There are 90 paintings-total value roughly two million dollars. The exhibition includes works by Francis Bacon, Patrick Caulfield, Ben Nicholson, Bridget Riley, David Hockney, Peter Blake, and dozens of other big names in British painting. Huge works — half the gallery is displaced (and you won't miss what's gone) — and invariably striking.

You have until 5pm on Wednesday the first of March to see this exhibition- so what do you think you're doing sitting reading this?
