About

The playwright Samuel Beckett and the sculptor Alberto Giacometti have been major influences on Arikha's art. These intense friendships, begun in the mid-50s when the artist was a successful abstract painter, endured for the rest of their lives, and accompanied Arikha's courageous switch from abstraction to what he was to call his ‘post-abstract naturalism' in 1965, at the age of 36. This first exhibition of works from the artist's estate, following his death last year, covers the last 45 years of a life intensely lived as artist, writer on art, and occasional lecturer and exhibition organiser.
