If you happen to be in London in the end of September you must check the new exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts - Abstract Expressionism.
From 24th September until 2nd January significants works from Pollock, Rothko, Kooning, Kline and Gorky will be showcased alongside with lesser known, but also important and influential artists, who gave life to the American artistic movement that took place in the 40's, in New York. The Abstract Expressionism was the first American art moment to reach international exposure and led New York to be the centre of the art world, a role formerly filled by Paris.
"Seeing these works made my imagination come to life and realise what painting could be – very poetic, very moving, and very physical." Christopher Le Brun, President of the Royal Academy
Be prepared to see high scales paintings, vivid colours and iconic art pieces.
The exhibition is curated by independent art historian Dr David Anfam, alongside Edith Devaney, Contemporary Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts.
The tickets are now available at the Royal Academy of Art's website and cost £17 (without donation). The exhibition is open from Saturday – Thursday 10am – 6pm and Friday 10am – 10pm.
