THURSDAY 25th JANUARY  2018                    TATE BRITAIN                          IMPRESSIONISTS IN LONDON
ln the 1870s,  France was devastated by the Franco-Prussian war and arlists such as Monet, Tissot, Pissano and others, took refuge across the Channel. Friendships that developed not only influenced their own work but also contributed  to the British art scene. "lmpressionists in London, French artists in exile" (1870-1904) is the first exhibition to show the connection between French and British arlists. Their art is a fascinating insight into how London was seen by French artists and the wonderful works that came from their time in London.

MONDAY  26th FEBRUARY  2018                  TATE MODERN                      AMEDEO MODIGLIANI'S  WORK

Modigliani (1844-1920)  produced some of the most memorable art of the early twentieth century. Born in Livorno, ltaly and working in Paris from 1906, his career was tragically cut short; he died of tuberculosis at the age of 35. Under the influence of Romanian sculptor Brancusi whom he met in 1909, Modigliani  produced  an impressive  series  of African influenced stone figures. After the outbreak of the war, he turned to painting. Most of his subjects  were nudes or poftraits featuring slender elongated figures.
