High Art and Low Life (V&A, 071-938 8500, to 31 Oct). 200 exhibits from the 1890s. Good on the Studio magazine and an excellent survey of Beardsley.

East (Norwich Gallery, 0603 610561, to 4 Sept). New artists selected by Conrad Fischer and David Tremlett. Consistently interesting - little sculpture but the best show of new art this year.

Partners (Annely Juda, 071-629 7578, to 18 Sept). Genial survey of husbands and wives in 20th-century art, including Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock.

Anton Raphael Mengs (Kenwood House, 081-348 1286, to 12 Sept). Representative works by the once famous German-Italian neoclassicist.

From View to Vision (Whitworth, Manchester, 061-273 4865, to 31 Oct). British watercolours from 1750 to 1850 - broadly Sandby to Turner.
