To start things off we have Eileen Cooper RA at Leicester Museum & Art Gallery. The show is called Parallel Lines and will feature works from the span of Cooper's 40-year career in art making. This exhibition will include her work parallel to other works in art history that have inspired or directly influenced her paintings, allowing visitors to view and interpret how the art process begins and ends with inspiration The show will run from the 10th of September until the 27th of November 2022.
Don’t miss Bridgeman Artist Anne Rothenstein and her first solo exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery. Anne is a primarily self-taught British painter whose work captures the human figure in a very ethereal manner. Her use of colour and open landscape provide a breath of freshness to the viewers. Her show will be on view until 5 November 2022.
Opening to the public on 1st October is an exhibition of work by our iconic member Lucian Freud at The National Gallery. The Credit Suisse Exhibition presents Lucian Freud: New Perspectives which is the first major exhibition of Freud’s work in the last 10 years, tying together almost seven decades of paintings. Bridgeman Images is proud to represent the Estate of Lucian Freud exclusively. One of the most prevalent figure painters in the UK, this show allows the viewer to follow Freud’s painting progression from his early works to his final ones. New Perspective invites us to step back to take a look at his works under new or pre-established contexts. The show will open on October 1st and continue until 22 January 2023.
Bridgeman Images’ partner, The Courtauld presents Fuseli and the Modern Woman: Fashion, Fantasy, Fetishism. Henry Fuseli is one of the most flamboyant artists of the 18th century who often depicted fantastical scenes from classic and contemporary stories and literature. The current exhibition explores Fuseli's lifetime interest in the female form and the secret lives of women. He sought to capture the mysterious life of modern women, from their sexuality to their physical beauty, dresses and hairstyles. This exhibition explores the 18th-19th century anxiety surrounding gender, sexuality and self-expression during the most transformative time in European history. The exhibition will run from 14 October - 8 January 2023.
Reopening its doors on 15th October, Bridgeman Images’ partner Leighton House has just undergone remodelling to provide patrons with a richer, more immersive art experience. A new wing has been fully refurbished, which originated from the 20th-century home additions and it gives way to the building's historical features and opens up the space for more galley viewings. The entire building is step-free and accessible for all patrons, thus providing a beautiful, inspiring space open for all art lovers.
