Explore the life of Kenneth Clark at the Tate Britain
Date Posted: 23/04/14
Art fans will be able to learn about the life and work of Kenneth Clark at the Tate Britain from May 20th to August 10th.
Kenneth Clark (1903–1983) was one of the most influential figures in British art and the new exhibition entitled Kenneth Clark: Looking for Civilisation will look at his role as a patron, collector, art historian and public servant.
Clark was the first to bring the art of the 20th century to a mass television audience and championed work by leading figures such as Henry Moore, Victor Pasmore, John Piper and Graham Sutherland.
The display will include around 200 works by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Hokusai, Constable, Degas, Seurat and Cézanne and also feature clips from his landmark series Civilisation 1969, a series which has influenced arts documentary-making up to the modern day.
It will also showcase artwork that Clark himself commissioned such as Moore’s Shelter Drawings and Sutherland’s and Piper’s images of the Blitz.
Visit the exhibition and see others at the Tate Britain on a London city break.
