Terra in London

Following the success of An American Experiment: George Bellows and the Ashcan Painters, shown at London's National Gallery in 2011 (CLICK), the Terra Foundation for American Art is forking out $550,000 to support four major exhibitions of Yankee art in London in the spring of this year. 1) The National Gallery gets Through American Eyes: Frederic Church and the Landscape Oil Sketch, opening on 6 February. 2) Tate Modern gets Lichtenstein: A Retrospective, the largest group of the artist’s works ever assembled, opening 21 February. 3) The National Portrait Gallery gets George Catlin: American Indian Portraits, the first major exhibition of Caitlin’s portraits to be held in Europe since the 1840s, opening 7 March. 4) The Royal Academy of Arts gets George Bellows: Modern American Life, the first comprehensive exhibition of Bellows’ work in the UK, opening 16 March. Above is Bellows' Portrait of Paddy Flannigan, a New York urchin. CLICK.
