This show is the largest solo exhibition to date by the artist, illustrator and printmaker Ed Kluz.

As a whole, Kluz’s work reflects the many different characters and styles of British architecture over the last 500 years.

Drawn in Colour: Degas from the Burrell, The National Gallery
Coinciding with the centenary of French Impressionist Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas’s death, this exhibition showcases work from The Burrell Collection, Glasgow, and includes a group of 20 pastels that have never been shown outside of Scotland since they were acquired. It highlights how Degas continued to find new ways of depicting modern Parisian life, creating a style that was very different from that of his fellow Impressionists. It also explores how his relentless experimentation with materials resulted in him eventually preferring pastel over oil paint.
Until 7 May 2018, www.nationalgallery.org.uk
