‘This show manages to collect a wide range of styles that are sometimes surprising given our popular image of Munch’s work is typically unhinged and depressing. Instead, we are offered some of his more bright and colourful works, mainly in portraiture, and in doing so, a renewed understanding of his development towards externalising the human psyche.⁠’

‘By juxtaposing contemporary fashion pieces with their inspired historical counterparts, the show makes a strong case for the ordinariness of what modern viewers might consider ‘radical’ fashion choices.’

Review – The Fabric of Our Nation

British Museum

The world of Stonehenge

‘The paintings are often large, dark, and full of impasto, evoking a sense of animalistic violence in Bacon’s creative process. His use of materials creates some splendidly textured surfaces, including an unusual decision to embrace the use of dust. Oftentimes, the impasto is disturbing, as a horrifically realistic ear or snarling mouth materialises from a flat surface.⁠’
