This catalogue accompanies our major exhibition of work by British artist Claudette Johnson. A founding member of the Black British Arts Movement, Johnson is considered one of the most significant figurative artists of her generation. For over 40 years she has created large-scale drawings of Black women and men that are at once intimate and powerful.
Presenting a carefully selected group of major works from across Claudette Johnson’s career, from key early drawings of the 1980s, which first established her name, to her remarkable new and recent works, this exhibition and publication offers a compelling overview of Johnson’s pioneering career and artistic development.
This publication is for sale exclusively at The Courtauld until the 29th of September.
