Leon Kossoff, "London Landscapes"

Leon Kossoff, Outside Kilburn Underground Station, 1984
Free

Some 90 drawings created over six decades, from the early 1950s to the present, are on view in this survey of Kossoff, a lion of the School of London. Along with Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Frank Auerbach, Kossoff transformed figure painting, updating it for a postwar world while maintaining ties to tradition. The focus of this show, and indeed of Kossoff's work as a whole, is the city of London, with drawings that trace London's transformation from bombed-out wartime capital to global financial center.
