Discover the boundary-pushing paintings by one of Britain’s most influential artists with Patrick Bade
The Petit Palais has partnered with the Tate Britain to present the very first major retrospective in France dedicated to the English painter Walter Sickert. This resolutely modern artist, who chose enigmatic and often perturbing subjects, is poorly represented in French collections. This despite the fact that Sickert forged artistic and personal ties with many French artists and brought to England a manner of painting shaped by the time he spent in Paris. The exhibition is therefore an opportunity to (re)discover a unique artist who had a decisive impact on English figurative painting, notably that of Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud.
