Current Season

March - May 2018 – When the personal becomes professional

"More important than the photographs, is the relationship I have with the people I photograph." Robert Mapplethorpe

Personal relationships sometimes dominate an artist’s creative output. Without Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud may never have created his later, more painterly and emotionally powerful portraits. The collaboration between Picasso and ballet impresario Sergei Diaghilev produced unprecedented stage sets and costumes for the Ballets Russes. And for decades, tales of Frida Kahlo’s love affairs with Diego Rivera and Leon Trotsky eclipsed the brilliance of her self-portraits. Our art talks this season aim to uncover the aesthetic masterpieces beyond the private relations of the masters.

Also, we'll be checking out the art fairs, museums, and commercial galleries to uncover what's new and cutting edge in today's London. Whether you are new to the art world or a knowledgeable art lover, you are welcome at the London Art Salon's invigorating social events.
