    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?

    NYC: Dia, Beacon

    Beacon, New York State Permanent exhibition

    Once you get there, the architectural is minimalist and industrial, with expansive spaces that are well suited to the needs of large-scale installations, paintings, and sculptures.

    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.

    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.

    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."

    Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait @ The MoMA

    Midtown, New York City Until Thursday 18 January, 2018

    The repeated motif of the spider is based on memories of the artist's mother. It alludes to the strength of Bourgeois' mother, with metaphors of spinning, weaving, nurture and protection. Her mother Josephine was a woman who repaired tapestries in her father's textile restoration workshop in Paris.
