Conceived by the esteemed art dealer and writer Karsten Schubert (1961- 2019), the exhibition celebrates his lasting legacy and vision after his recent death.

STAND U49 | 13-16 June 2019

In collaboration with their partners, Dickinson are delighted to present for sale Lucio Fontana’s Ambiente Spaziale con tagli (1960), the largest of the artist’s ceiling installations, at this year’s Art Basel Unlimited.

Ambiente Spaziale con tagli was commissioned from Fontana by the Milan-based property developer Antonio Melandri, as part of a renovation project overseen by the architect and interior designer Osvaldo Borsani. It was not Fontana’s first instance of collaboration with Borsani: throughout the 1950s, he regularly provided ‘spatial’ ceilings and decorated entire walls for his friend, in an exclusive collaborative relationship. Inspired by diverse sources including Michelangelo’s architectural designs, Fontana wrote to Borsani expressing his desire to create something ‘halfway between architecture and painting’…

Joe Tilson: New Paintings

10 April – 18 May 2019

Marlborough Fine Art

Continuing a year of celebration for his 90th birthday, Marlborough is delighted to present an exhibition of new paintings by Joe Tilson. Following on from his 2016 exhibition, Stones of Venice, this collection continues to draw upon Tilson’s love and knowledge of the city he has visited for over 60 years, bringing together some 18 works on canvas, painted in acrylic with his characteristic use of bright colour and expressively layered texture. As Ruskin’s 200th anniversary is marked in 2019, this continuation on the theme of Stones of Venice is a timely nod to the influence the great art historian and critic has had on Tilson. Ruskin’s 1851-53 examination of Venetian art and architecture of the same title sits applicably in line with Tilson’s latest series of works, depicting façades of his favourite Venetian churches…

Collecting Colour is the first solo exhibition by British artist Nina Murdoch (b. 1970) in four years.

The exhibition brings together 16 new large-scale egg tempera and gesso paintings alongside a group of pastel studies. Together they showcase Murdoch’s representation of architectural spaces from a close-up, more abstracted viewpoint. Nina Murdoch: Collecting Colour runs at Marlborough Fine Art in London from 31 October until 24 November 2018...

Public Appeal to find the Lost Watercolours of Eric Ravilious

Eric Ravilious, one of most admired and popular British artists of the 20th century, produced a remarkable number of watercolours in a career cut short by his untimely death in 1942 while serving as an official war artist.

Over 250 of these watercolours are known, but it is believed that around 40 are lying undiscovered or uncatalogued in collections around the world. The Hedingham Press aim to publish the definitive catalogue of Ravilious’s watercolours, and are launching a public appeal to find those ‘lost’ watercolours...
