Bomberg Exhibition at Laing Art Gallery


Despite scandalous critical neglect within his own lifetime, David Bomberg (1890 – 1957) is nowadays recognized as one of the 20th century’s leading British artists. This major reassessment of his life and career is the first full Bomberg exhibition for more than a decade, and marks the 60th anniversary of the artist’s death.

The exhibition examines all the major phases of Bomberg’s career, including his audacious early contribution to pre-war British modernism, his unhappy role as a commissioned war artist in both world wars, his masterly landscapes in Jerusalem and Spain in the 1920s and 30s, his penetrating self-portraiture and portraiture of friends and family and his astonishing mature achievements as a landscape painter.

The exhibition is curated by the Ben Uri Gallery and Museum in association with Pallant House Gallery, and comprises more than 60 works. Supported in Newcastle by the Friends of the Laing Art Gallery.
