  • Day Will Break More Than Once

    ‘I was thinking about objects that turn, and in a moment of turning they lose their abstraction and find a moment of coherence – as if the world shatters, and turns, finds a logic, and then passes by.’

  • The World New Made: Figurative Painting in the Twentieth Century

    A bold new critique of the accepted history of figurative painting in the twentieth century.

    In The World New Made, critic Timothy Hyman argues that abstraction was just one of the means by which artists renewed pictorial language. Focusing on those painters who bucked tradition and opted for a new kind of figuration, Hyman presents them as a countermovement to the sometimes oppressive stylistic imperative that set in as Cubism became a movement. Around the world, artists such as Max Beckmann, Fernand Léger, Balthus, Paula Rego, Marc Chagall, Stanley Spencer, R. B. Kitaj, Philip Guston, Picasso, Matisse, Lucian Freud, and others found an idiom for human-centered painting. Together they offer a counterargument to Western formalism, but also a foundation for the figurative painters of the twenty-first century.
