People who have saved this event:



R. B. Kitaj (1932—2007) was one of the most significant painters of the post-war period. His work defied the trend in abstract art prevalent in the 1960s and brought him to the forefront of British figurative painting. The exhibition at the Jewish Museum London features over 20 works in which Kitaj explored his Jewish identity, including iconic paintings such as The Wedding; If Not, Not; Cecil Court, London W2 (The Refugees) and The Jewish Rider.
