Rodin rethinking the fragment
Nov 2 – Jan 27 all-day
Rodin rethinking the fragment @ The Holburne Museum

Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was a collector and lover of the antique, and his sculpture was influenced by his admiration for classical art. Alongside works from the British Museum and the Holburne’s own collection, this display will show The Thinker alongside historic works to reveal the importance of the fragment in creating Rodin’s modern sculptures.

A British Museum Partnership Spotlight Loan.

Visiting Masterpiece by Hockney
Nov 2 – Jan 27 all-day
Visiting Masterpiece by Hockney @ The Holburne Museum

One of the nation’s most loved paintings, Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy is also one of the great portraits of British art. The image speaks powerfully to the eighteenth-century conversation pieces in the Holburne’s own collection as well as to the portraits of singers, dancers and actors in Gainsborough & the Theatre.

George Shaw
Feb 8 – May 6 all-day
George Shaw @ The Holburne Museum | England | United Kingdom

The Holburne is the only European venue for Shaw’s major retrospective at the Yale Center for British Art. It covers his career from 1996 to the present, including some new works never shown in the UK. Shaw’s paintings, made with enamel model paint, focus on the Tile Hill estate, a post-war development on the outskirts of Coventry where he grew up, and the ancient woods surrounding it. Steeped in modern and historic fine art traditions, Shaw’s work alludes to twentieth-century painting and photography, and the legacy of such European masters as Titian. The exhibition also features his skills as a draughtsman.

The exhibition has been organized by the Yale Center for British Art in collaboration with the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and the Holburne Museum.
