About

British artist Patrick Caulfield radically re-imagined traditional genres such as still life and domestic interiors to produce paintings of startling originality. This film features Nicolas Serota discussing Caulfield’s Interior with a Picture, 1985-86 during the installation of the exhibition at Tate Britain.

The artist Dexter Dalwood chose Dining Recess, 1972 as a favourite work of Caulfield’s to discuss. The painting is seen here at a conservation studio in south London, ahead of its installation in the exhibition, and by chance TateShots was also able to film the preparatory drawing for this fantastic work.
