The exhibition "Nicolas Poussin the Father of French Painting" at the Royal Academy (above, Eliezer and Rebecca, 1648) is much too remarkable and cornucopian a show for mere recommendations. Unless you are mad, stupid, terminally narrow-minded or have some other such watertight excuse make sure you visit it. There are also excellent, if less-publicised displays, at the Wallace Collection and the Dulwich Picture Gallery.
This is a particularly good time for London's art lovers - there is Klein at the Hayward, De Kooning's edible women at the Tate, and Odilon Redon's strange symbolist fantasies at the Royal Academy.
