About

This summer Abbot Hall Art Gallery is curating the first major UK exhibition of the American artist R.B. Kitaj (1932-2007), following the Tate's controversial retrospective in 1994. Offering an opportunity for a fresh reappraisal of his artistic achievements the exhibition will feature approximately fifty paintings and works on paper, which have been selected from the point of view of Kitaj's own concept of painting as portraiture in its broadest sense. Including many self portraits and portraits of some of the leading thinkers, poets and artists of the nineteenth and twentieth century such as Isaiah Berlin, Robert Creeley and David Hockney.
