Tate to stage major exhibitions by Matisse, Turner and Mondrian
Friday 19 April 2013
Major exhibitions by Matisse, Turner and Mondrian will be among the highlights of next year's shows at the Tate galleries.
The forthcoming programme was announced today with shows featuring the late Richard Hamilton also one of the prominent names to be featured.
Henri Matisse will be celebrated at Tate Modern with a collection of 120 works drawing together his important paper cut-outs from the later stages of his career.
It will reunite some works for the first time since they were created 60 years ago and will include his largest ever cut-out - Large Composition With Masks, which is 33ft (10m) long.
Tate Britain will feature the late works of JMW Turner, focusing on those created from 1835, a period for which he drew much acclaim.
Piet Mondrian's abstract works are to be the subject of an exhibition at Tate Liverpool in a year which marks the 70th anniversary of his death and there will be a life-size reconstruction of his Paris studio.
Tate Modern will also include the first retrospective of the career of pop artist Hamilton, who died in 2011.
In addition, sculptor Phyllida Barlow will create new work for next year's Tate Britain Commission.
