Phyllida Barlow @ Royal Academy

February 23, 2019 - June 23, 2019

But this is all a brilliant illusion.

Helene Schjerfbeck @ The Royal Academy

July 20, 2019 - October 22, 2019

Royal Academy of Arts

Over the course of a long career, Schjerfbeck skipped lightly between different artistic trends and traditions, creating stunning self-portraits and many intimate images of her female friends and relatives.  Helene Schjerfbeck (1862–1946) is a Finnish national icon. From her early naturalistic style – honed during her studies in France – to her highly abstracted self-portraits, this exhibition will present Schjerfbeck for the first time to UK audiences.
