The story of a century related by the exhibition and this exhibition catalogue is intricate yet simple and gripping; with its main focus being the highly influential paintings of Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon, it also showcases artists active at the same time. It brings alive the quality and force of individual works, while highlighting the profound dialogue between the artists and the links between some of the compositions from the second half of the 20th century. Despite their obvious differences, the artists presented – Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, R. B. Kitaj, Leon Kossoff, Paula Rego, F. N. Souza and Euan Uglow – remained faithful to the intimate and powerful depiction of the human figure and their own everyday landscape.

The selection also revisits the oeuvres of previous generations, whose art is integral to understanding the intimate, subjective and tangible depiction of reality. Works by Walter Richard Sickert, David Bomberg, Alberto Giacometti, Chaïm Soutine, Stanley Spencer and William Coldstream help us gain an insight into the School of London now placed in a broader time frame and more international context than before. This is also why the material includes Jenny Saville and Cecily Brown, members of the young generation working to continue this tradition.
