Albert Irvin and Abstract Expressionism at the RWA

About

A major retrospective of Albert Irvin, and a 60th anniversary celebration of the seminal exhibition, The New American Painting

Albert Irvin RA OBE RWA (Hon) (1922-2015) was one of Britain’s most important post-war painters and printmakers. He is best known for his large-scale abstract colourist paintings - some of the most distinctive to have ever been produced in this country. 

In 1959, Irvin visited an exhibition called The New American Painting at TateIt brought the boldest and best new artistic talent from across the Atlantic to London. The exhibition redefined what was possible for a generation of British artists. 

For Irvin, it was an epiphany.

Albert Irvin and Abstract Expressionism will bring together works by Irvin and the major abstract expressionist artists that inspired him, including Jackson PollockWillem de KooningRobert MotherwellGrace HartiganBarnett NewmanSam Francis and Adolph Gottlieb.

These will be shown alongside other UK abstract artists, such as Peter LanyonBasil BeattieGillian AyresJohn Hoyland and Sandra Blow.

The show will also chart Irvin’s earlier practice in a room featuring the British ‘Kitchen Sink’ artists including Edward MiddleditchJohn Bratby and Peter Coker.
