Young Bomberg and the Old Masters

Wednesday 27 November 2019Sunday 01 March 2020

Paintings by British artist David Bomberg’s (1890-1957) together with works from the National Gallery collection that inspired him. From Botticelli to Michelangelo, the exhibition reveals how Bomberg’s rebellious, youthful works drew inspiration from the paintings he most admired in the Gallery. Far from inhibiting him, these Old Master paintings helped him leap forward and contribute to the language of early 20th-century modernist art at its most audacious.
