Bill Jacklin: Paintings & Monotypes Marlborough Fine Art, 6 Albemarle St, London W1S 4BY May 6 to June 7


Englishman in New York, Bill Jacklin RA, found his oeuvre in his adopted city, spending the last three decades painting haunting ‘urban portraits’ of it in all its moods and tempers, guises and glory, from large-scale canvases of crowds in flux to intimate moments of Seurat-like etchings. The exhibition coincides with Jacklin’s solo show of graphic works, A survey of Graphic work from the Sixties to the Present, round the corner at the Royal Academy (June 3 to August 28), and the publication of two new books: Bill Jacklin: Graphics (RA Publications, 2016) and Bill Jacklin’s New York (Scala, 2016) featuring an introduction by Sting and inter- view with Michael Peppiatt. Book signings at both venues on the first evening, 6 - 8pm.

Alex Katz Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens, London W2 3XA June 2 to Sept 11 (not July 6 or July 7 a.m.)


This exhibition of American artist Alex Katz’s work (b. 1927, New York) takes landscape as its focus, bringing together his recent output alongside select works from the past two decades. They exemplify his life-long quest to capture the present tense in paint. Regard- less of their scale, Katz describes these paintings as ‘environmental’ in the way in which they envelop the viewer. Influenced by films, billboard advertising, music, poetry and his close circle of friends and family. His portraits and landscapes are characterised by their flatness of color and fluidity of line.
