Paul Klee exhibition, at Tate Modern – 15th October 2013 to 9th March 2014
It’s been more than a decade since Paul Klee was last treated to a major UK exhibition. The Tate Modern will be exploring the Swiss artist’s work, whose intense and inventive work covered everything from surrealism and cubism, to expressionism and orientalism.
Castiglione: Lost Genius – 1st November 2013 to 16th March 2014
The Queen’s Gallery’s new exhibition is called “Castiglione: Lost Genius”. Castiglione worked in oils on paper, and won fame for his drawings and prints. His large, vibrant compositions were works of rare beauty, but he unaccountably fell from fame in the modern era.
