FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
The UK boasts some of the greatest art collections in the world. This winter make sure you catch some of the great exhibitions being showcased at the National Gallery and Tate Galleries. The national Gallery has quite a coup this year, with both a significant collection of Venetian art work entitled “Venice, Canaletto and his rivals” and a collection of Leonardo da Vinci’s paintings from when he worked as a court painter.
“Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the court of Milan” is apparently the most complete collection of Leonardo’s rare surviving paintings ever assembled. Whilst many exhibitions have focused upon the inventors many engineering, draughting and scientific qualities, this is assumed to be the first that is solely dedicated to his paintings. As a world first, the exhibition will bring many paintings never before seen in the UK and will be sure to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity, with such classic pieces as ‘Portrait of Cecilia Gallerani (The Lady with the Ermine)’, ‘Virgin and Child (The Madonna Litta)’ and Portrait of a Young Man (The Musician).
The exhibition will also house all the surviving preparatory drawings made by Leonardo for the 'Last Supper', visitors will learn as to how he planned and executed a painting on such a large scale. The exhibition runs from the 9th of November through to the 5th of March.
The Tate galleries consists of a federation of 4 different galleries: Tate Liverpool, Tate Britain (in London) Tate St Ives and Tate Modern. Whilst the Tate Modern demands media attention through its weird and wacky exhibits, the other Tate’s harbour the nations artistic heritage and are well worth visiting.
The Tate Britain re-entered the public consciousness when Banksy visited the museum to hang one of his own paintings on the wall. The stunt went unnoticed until hours later when the painting became unstuck and crashed to the floor. The picture consisted of a rural scene with an image of police tape stencilled on to it. Arguably currently the most infamous living UK artist, Banksy has targeted the Tate Galleries before at the turner prize where he sprayed “Mind the Crap” on the steps leading up to the gallery.
This winter though, Tate Britain has a exhibition focusing on the impact of immigration on UK art, whilst the Tate Modern focuses on the life of Gerhard Richter as he approaches his 80th birthday. Tate Liverpool explores the impact of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice in Wonderland has had on the art world. The Tate modern in St Ives has a look at Simon Fujiwara; an Anglo-Japanese artist who used to live a mile away from St Ives. The Gallery there continues to draw upon the fabulous wealth of creative talent from the area and from the 18th of Janurary to the 7th of May, it will continue the trend.
