Frank Auerbach: Twenty Self-Portraits
19 April - 14 July 2023
Featuring nine paintings and eleven drawings that date from 2017 to the present day, Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert in collaboration with Frankie Rossi Art Projects present the first ever exhibition of self-portraits by Frank Auerbach (b.1931) and the first presentation of new work by the artist since 2015.
‘I didn’t find actual formal components of my head all that interesting when I was younger, smoother and less frazzled. Now that I’ve got bags under my eyes, things are sagging and so on, there’s more material to work with.’ - Frank Auerbach
Primarily known for his landscapes of North London and portraits of a small circle of regular and dedicated sitters, the self-portraits are a notably rare aspect of the artist’s oeuvre. Prior to these recent works, Auerbach has only made two self-portrait drawings in 1958 and 1959, and one oil-over-charcoal on paper dated 1961-1965. It would be another 36 years before the artist drew himself again, and not until 2021 that Auerbach painted his first self-portrait on canvas.
Frank Auerbach is now represented by Frankie Rossi Art Projects.
