LONDON.- This summer Tate Britain presents a survey exhibition of the celebrated British painter, Patrick Caulfield. From the 1960s, Caulfield (1936 – 2005) has been known for his iconic and vibrant paintings of modern life that reinvigorated such traditional artistic genres as still life. Celebrating the artist’s mastery of colour, graphic elegance and wit, this exhibition offers the chance to reassess his influences and the legacy of his approach to painting.

Patrick Caulfield runs in parallel to an exhibition on contemporary artist Gary Hume (b. 1962), offering visitors the chance to see alongside each other two complementary British painters from different generations.
