    Drawn in Colour: Degas from the Burrell

    Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN Until Monday 07 May, 2018

    Degas is one of the rare artists who excels in pastel - far more than in oil paint.

    Opera: Passion, Power and Politics @ The V & A

    London Until Sunday 25 February, 2018

    This is one of those exhibtions where you HAVE TO GET the headsets.

    Cézanne Portraits @ The National Portrait Gallery

    London Until Sunday 11 February, 2018

    "The colours, the brushstrokes, the dimensionality - it’s all here.  Cezanne reduces his sitters to shapes of reflected light. It sounds cold and unfeeling but the result is majestic."

    Thomas Ruff Photographs 1979 – 2017 @ Whitechapel Gallery

    Tower Hamlets, London Until Sunday 21 January, 2018

    Ruff’s oeuvre seems complicated, but - once you know the key to his work, it is easier to connect to dots.

    Wade Guyton: Das New Yorker Atelier, Abridged @ The Serpentine

    Kensington Gardens, London Until Sunday 04 February, 2018

    Wade Guyton is a very fitting choice for The Serpentine, he is progressive, controversial and ground-breaking.

    Rachel Whiteread @ The Tate Britain

    Westminster, London Until Sunday 21 January, 2018

    But anyway back to Rachel. In 1993, she was the first woman to win the Turner Prize (1993 seems late but whatever!) and that same year she made House, a life-sized cast of the interior of a condemned terraced house in London’s East End, which existed for a few months before it was controversially demolished.

    Reflections: Van Eyck and the Pre-Raphaelites @ The National Gallery

    Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN Until Monday 02 April, 2018

    I found this exhibition hard… Van Eyck’s 'Arnolfini Portrait' inspiring the Pre-Raphaelites seems like a bit of a stretch.

    Monochrome: Painting in Black and White @ The National Gallery

    Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN Until Sunday 18 February, 2018

    Okay, I will admit, there are a couple things missing from this exhibition - where are Mark Rothko’s late paintings? Or Ad Reinhardt’s fugitive blacks? Or Robert Ryman?

    Basquiat: Boom for Real @ The Barbican

    Barbican Centre Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS Until Sunday 28 January, 2018

    This is a bad-ass exhibition. A chance for Londoners to see the first large-scale exhibition in the UK of the work of the incredible American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
