Cézanne's Portraits

National Portrait Gallery, St Martin's Place, London WC2H 0HE

The first exhibition ever devoted entirely to portraits by Cézanne, one of the most influential artists of the nineteenth century, bringing together fifty paintings from collections across the world. The artist's unique approach influenced the Cubists, Fauvists and successive generations of avant-garde artists. Both Matisse and Picasso described him as 'the father of us all'.

Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Not everyone will be taken into the future 

Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

Among the most celebrated artists of their generation, the Kabakovs draw upon the visual culture of the former Soviet Union.  The Hermitage Museum has a major collection of their works, with The Red Wagon on permanent display in the new General Staff Building. This exhibition charts the Kabakovs’ incredible artistic journey, from the early paintings, drawings, albums and sculptural works made by Ilya working as an ‘unofficial’ artist in his Moscow studio from the 1960s, through to his move to New York in the late 1980s. Coinciding with the centenary of the 1917 Russian Revolution it explores the role of the artist in society in uncertain times.  It travels on to The Hermitage in St Petersburg after London.
