Today we headed to Sir John @soanemuseum, a fellow nominee for the @Artfund #MuseumoftheYear award, along with @hepworthwakefield, @palacehouse_nkt and the Lapworth Museum of Geology.

Among the many wonderful objects and stories that were shared with us were letters between J.M.W. Turner and Sir John Soane discussing Turner's painting “Forum Romanum, for Soane’s Museum,” which now hangs at Tate Britain. [image 1]

Turner initially painted this work for Sir John Soane's collection but Soane rejected the painting for not being suited to the room in which it was to hang. In a series of letters Turner and Soane discussed the commission and Turner eventually returned Soane's cheque for the painting. You can clearly see Turner's distinctive signature on the letters.

Sir Augustus Wall Callcott's painting, "The Passage Point", an Italian Composition 1829-30, eventually replaced the Turner painting in Soane's museum. [image 4]

Turner and Soane were friends for many years; they regularly dined together and went on fishing trips. A distinguished architect himself, Soane was a prolific collector of contemporary art and championed many of the artists of his day.

ART WORDS: The ‘Nabis' were a group of post-impressionist French painters active from 1888–1900 whose work is characterised by flat patches of colour, bold contours and simplified drawing.

Founded in secret by Paul Sérusier, the group included Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard and Maurice Denis. Their bold simplified style was inspired by Paul Gauguin. Their unconventional outlook led them to experiment with painting on different surfaces, including cardboard and velvet, and to create set designs for symbolist theatre.

#WorkoftheWeek: Portrait of a Young Woman 1935 is a painting by British artist Meredith Frampton.
The work relates to the tradition of full-length portraits of women that is associated with the work of earlier artists such as Anthony Van Dyck and Thomas Gainsborough. However, the level of detail and clarity of each object, along with the distinctive colour palette, give the portrait an unmistakably modern feel.

Does beauty still matter in art?

We think @katieandthekid did an amazing job of capturing #CerithWynEvans's neon light sculpture at Tate Britain.

Next Friday you can also experience this artwork from a new perspective by joining us for live music performed in response to it. In collaboration with the artist, internationally recognised pianist Mark Knoop has devised a programme of musical events to be performed within the gallery space, including a performance of John Cage’s Two² by Knoop and Philip Thomas.

#TateWeather says it's time to head to the beach and appreciate the sparkling summer light, just like artist Alex Katz in his paintings of the Maine coastline from the late 1990s.

#ArtWords: 'Neue Wilden' was the term used in Germany for neo-expressionism, a movement which saw the re-emergence of expressive painting in the late 1970s and 1980s.

Like other neo-expressive movements of this era, the work of the Neue Wilden, is characterised by bright, intense colours and quick, broad brushstrokes. It was seen as a reaction to the minimalism and conceptual art that had dominated the 1970s.

★★★★★ “From Man Ray’s portrait of Virginia Woolf to Orton’s library book collages and Noël Coward’s dressing gown, this vital survey is bursting with fascinating stories” - The Guardian

#QueerBritishArt at Tate Britain features works from 1861–1967 relating to LGBTQ+ identities. Deeply personal artworks are presented alongside pieces aimed at a wider public, which helped to forge a sense of community when modern terminology of ‘lesbian’, ‘gay’, ‘bisexual’ and ‘trans’ were unrecognised. Together, they reveal a remarkable range of identities and stories.

Open now until 1 October.
