"London Calling" at the Getty

The artists of the "School of London" rejected contemporary art’s preoccupation with abstraction and conceptualism in favor of the human figure and everyday landscape. Drawn largely from the holdings of Tate, "London Calling," on view through November 13, highlights six of the leading "School of London" artists who revolutionized and reinvigorated figurative painting in the later-20th century: Bacon, Freud, Kossoff, Andrews, Auerbach, and Kitaj.

The presentation of this exhibition is a collaboration between the Tate and the J. Paul Getty Museum. It is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
