    Marlborough Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Kitaj: Portraits and Reflections, a solo exhibition of the work of R.B. Kitaj at Abbot Hall Art Gallery, a part of the Lakeland Arts Trust, in Kendal, England.

    Kitaj: Portraits and Reflections is the first major solo exhibition of the artist’s work in the United Kingdom since R.B. Kitaj: A Retrospective (1994) at Tate Modern. On view from July 9 to October 8, 2011, the exhibition consists of approximately fifty paintings and works on paper and explores the artist's portraiture and self-portraiture. Please see the gallery’s website for more details. Exhibition co-curator Marilyn McCully will present a lecture entitled, “Kitaj in Spain: Josep Vicente and Sant Feliu,” on Thursday, July 14th.

    Jacques Lipchitz at the Villa Noailles 

    Marlborough Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of works by Jacques Lipchitz in The Salon Rose at the Villa Noailles in Hyères, France. The Villa Noailles was designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens for Arthur Anne Marie Charles Vicomte de Noailles and his wife, Marie-Laure Bischoffsheim. Through their patronage and friendship, the Vicomte and Vicomtesse de Noailles supported influential artists such as Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Man Ray, Salvador Dali, Luis Buñuel, and Constantin Brâncuşi. Indeed, the house features prominently in the Man Ray film, Les mystères du château de dé (1929). In 1928, Gabriel Guevrekian designed a garden to suit the house, the focal point of which is the sculpture, La joie de vivre, by Lipchitz. The villa, now an art center, will feature an exceptional collection of works by Lipchitz, including Figure debout (1916), which has not been publically exhibited since 1930. Please see the Villa Noailles website for more information.
