The Art Review: Postwar Modern, Marley and The Blue Boy
In this episode of the Art Review, James Nicholls explores four exhibitions.
Starting with The Barbican’s spring blockbuster Postwar Modern: New Art in Britain 1945-1965. The exhibition brings together more than 200 works from 48 artists, created at a time of austerity, Cold war, Nuclear Threat and the dismantling of the British empire.
James also covers The Saatchi Gallery’s Bob Marley: One Love Experience, Helen Frankenthaler: Radical Beauty at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, and ends with The Blue Boy at the National Gallery, as Gainsborough’s painting returns exactly 100 years after it was moved to America.
