This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Italy in over thirty years. Widely regarded as Britain’s greatest living artist, Frank Auerbach (b. 1931, Berlin), was last shown in Italy when he represented Great Britain in the 1986 Venice Biennale, winning the prestigious Golden Lion prize. The exhibition includes a major oil painting which has never been publicly displayed in Italy before, as well as drawings, many of which have left the artist’s studio for the first time.
