Pure Gold at 50

The Federation of British Artists is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Pure Gold: 50 years of the FBA will showcase "significant works" from the history of its nine societies. Paintings by John Singer Sargent, Augustus John, Walter Sickert and Sir William Orpen, on loan from major public and private collections, will be shown alongside works by the FBA’s most eminent contemporary member artists. Above is a detail from Sir Gerald Festus Kelly's painting Saw Ohn Nyun V, one of his favourite models. The exhibition runs from 9 to 19 February at the Mall Galleries in London, admission free.
