BSL Tour: Frank Auerbach

Well known for the depth, texture and sense of space in his painting, Frank Auerbach (b 1931, Berlin) is a British artist who has made some of the most vibrant, alive and inventive paintings of recent times. Often compared to Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud in terms of the revolutionary and powerful nature of his work, his depictions of people and the urban landscapes near his London studio show him to be one of the greatest painters alive today.

This tour is led by BSL tour guide Jonathan Brown with voice over interpretation, hearing loops and amplifiers are available on request.
