Tate Britain - Edward Burne-Jones
Exhibition Dates: 24 October 2018 - 24 February 2019
The last of the Pre-Raphaelites, Burne-Jones is synonymous with a refined and spiritualised style of beauty. From being an outsider in British art and spending much of his life in isolation, Burne-Jones (1833–1898) became a key figure in the art world at the end of the 19th century and a pioneer of the symbolist movement. He challenged society by disengaging his art from the modern world, offering a parallel universe based on myth, legend and the Bible. Working in a wide range of materials, he pioneered a radical new approach to narrative in works created for both public and intimate settings.
This exhibition is London’s first major retrospective of the artist's work for over 40 years and showcases 150 works in different media, including painting, stained glass and tapestry, all of which foreground Burne-Jones' belief in the redemptive power of art.

Tate Britain - The EY Exhibition: Van Gogh and Britain
Exhibition Dates: 27 March - 11 August 2019
In 2019 this major exhibition brings together 40 works by Vincent van Gogh to reveal how he was inspired by Britain and how he inspired British artists.
Van Gogh and Britain presents the largest collection of Van Gogh’s paintings in the UK for nearly a decade. Some of his most famous works will be brought together from around the world including Shoes, Starry Night on the Rhône, L'Arlésienne, and two works he made while a patient at the Saint-Paul Asylum, At Eternity’s Gate and Prisoners Exercising. They will be joined by the very rarely lent Sunflowers from London’s National Gallery.
Van Gogh lived in England as a young man for several crucial years. He walked the streets alone, dreaming of the future. He fell in love with British culture, especially the novels of Charles Dickens and George Eliot. He was inspired by the art he saw here, including paintings by Constable and Millais which are featured in the exhibition. They affected his paintings throughout his career.
The exhibition also looks at the British artists who were inspired by Van Gogh, including Francis Bacon, David Bomberg and the young Camden Town painters. It shows how his vision set British artists on the road to modern art.

Tate Modern - Pierre Bonnard: The Colour of Memory
Exhibition Dates: 23 January - 6 May 2019
Rediscover this master of colour and composition at Tate Modern.
This is the first major exhibition of Pierre Bonnard’s work in the UK since the much-loved show at Tate 20 years ago. It will allow new generations to discover Bonnard’s unconventional use of colour, while surprising those who think they already know him.
Born 1867, Bonnard was, with Henri Matisse, one of the greatest colourists of the early 20th century. He preferred to work from memory, imaginatively capturing the spirit of a moment and expressing it through his unique handling of colour and innovative sense of composition.
The exhibition concentrates on Bonnard’s work from 1912, when colour became a dominant concern, until his death in 1947. It presents landscapes and intimate domestic scenes which capture moments in time – where someone has just left the room, a meal has just finished, a moment lost in the view from the window or a stolen look at a partner.
Organised by Tate Modern in collaboration with Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen and Kunstforum Wien.
