John Minton and the Romantic Tradition
To March 9
John Minton was fine when he stuck to industry, street scenes and landscape, but unfortunately he liked to add sentimentalised figures. He gets a show of his own at Pallant House, Chichester in the summer, but here he is surrounded by some robuster New Romantics such as John Piper and Keith Vaughan.

Victoria and Albert MuseumLondon
From Eames chairs to aircraft. Or the other way round.
15 July to 12 Nov

  1. The Hockney is marvellous - astonishing. I'm looking forward to the American 30s show at the RA.
