Kitaj: Portraits and Reflections, Abbot Hall Gallery, Kendal

The American painter R B Kitaj, long resident in London, left England in grief-stricken disgust after critics had panned his retrospective at the Tate Gallery in 1994.

Monet has has long been more popular on this side of the Channel than the side on which he was born. When the Royal Academy exhibited a show of the French impressionist's work in 1999, the gallery opened around the clock to meet demand. A show at the Tate in 2005, showing Monet alongside Whistler and Turner, drew more than 382,000 visits. By contrast, the French have always been surprisingly cool about the pioneering artist, preferring his contemporaries such as Manet and Cézanne.
