Auerbach has history with Rembrant; his small show at the National gallery was full of his questionings of rembrant's structures in his etchings, plus the mark making in Rembrant's work seems to be the starting point for Auerbach's startling use of paint as form itself rather than just colour and mark. The small Rembrant's made me smile, you can see his spritely mind moving from one point to another. The relation to Auerbach's large, obsessive and hefty (in all senses) can be tentative; (is it the colour matching? or Subject?), it doesn't matter, his paintings work well with and against the grand master. It made me very happy and gave a lot to think about – what more could you ask of 10 paintings on a Wednesday?
