London, UK

Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert and Frankie Rossi Art are delighted to present Euan Uglow, a major loan exhibition marking the joint representation of The Estate of Euan Uglow. Curated by Catherine Lampert, this exhibition marks fifty years since the major touring retrospective she organised with the Arts Council in 1974. The twenty-five paintings on display bring together the artist’s most important nudes, still lifes, and landscapes.

One of the most significant figurative painters of 20th century British Art, Euan Uglow (1932-2000) is renowned for his meticulously constructed works. Rare and exceptional masterpieces from public and private collections bring to light an integral element of Uglow’s practice: the nude as an essentially formal problem. The Diagonal (1971-77); Root Five Nude (1974-75); and Curled Nude on a Stool (1982-83) present Uglow’s masterful placement of bodies and limbs, unremittingly measured over his lengthy painting process.

Landscapes emerging from Uglow’s ‘pilgrimages’ to the Mediterranean attest to his unwavering pursuit of clarity, sensibility for luminous planes of light, and accomplished control over forms, as fastidiously devised as in his portraits and still lifes.

The exhibition catalogue is comprised of essays by Catherine Lampert and Andrew Lambirth. Celia Lyttelton also revisits her experience sitting for Curled Nude on a Stool forty years ago, unearthing the process of posing as a demanding discipline in which both model and artist are tied.

  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

  • Adraint Khadafhi Bereal: The Black Yearbook
    4 Color Books / Penguin Random House

    When photographer Adraint Bereal graduated from the University of Texas, he self-published an impressive volume of portraits, personal statements, and interviews that explored UT’s campus culture and offered an intimate look at the lives of Black students matriculating within a majority white space. Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.
