Observingarts: On Auerbach: Painting, process, landscape at Tate Britain 24th of February
How can painting capture place through time? For half a century Frank Auerbach has lived and worked in Camden Town, documenting this changing urban landscape and recording ‘the life that seemed… passionate and exciting and disappearing all the time.’
This conversation between painter George Shaw and Auerbach scholar William Feaver, chaired by National Gallery curator Colin Wiggins, focuses on Auerbach’s urban landscapes, discussing his process in relation to contemporary painterly and personal engagements with the concepts of place and time.
