Book Description

1 Oct 2010
This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition to bring together the seminal group of paintings of London building sites by Frank Auerbach (born 1931). These extraordinary paintings are among the most important contributions to post-war painting in Britain. The exhibition will be held at the Courtauld, London. Fascinated by the post-war rebuilding of London, Auerbach combed the city s numerous building sites with his sketchbook in hand. He visited the major sites, including St Paul s, Oxford Street, Leicester Square and the Shell Building on the South Bank. Drawing on public and private collections nationally and internationally, the catalogue charts the early development of Auerbach s remarkable approach to painting, for which he is celebrated as one of Britain s greatest living artists.
