The Newspaper Man: Michael Andrews and the art of painted collage

The Newspaper Man: Michael Andrews and the art of painted collage

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 2nd Jul 2019

This lecture focuses on an extraordinary pair of pictures painted by the prominent English artist Michael Andrews in the early 1960s, in which he juxtaposes a mass of visual elements taken from various photographic sources. Deer Park (1962) and All Night Long (1963-4) offer fascinating examples of what we might call painted collage. They also see Andrews testing out the possibilities of a new kind of painting of modern life, in which the forms of pictorial fragmentation and overlap associated with collage are brought to bear on the myths and imagery of contemporary journalism, literature and film.

Speaker:
Professor Mark Hallett, Director of Studies, The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.

Chair:
Professor David Solkin FBA, Emeritus Professor of the History of Art, The Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London
