LONDON.- Eykyn Maclean London announced that their new show is a curatorial collaboration with art historian Michael Peppiatt entitled Interviews with Artists. The exhibition will run from 19th June to 27th July, 2012. The show coincides with the publication of Peppiatt’s book of the same title published by Yale University Press.

Peppiatt developed close relationships with many of the great artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition will feature selected works by Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Balthus, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dado, Jean Dubuffet, Peter Blake, Henry Moore, Hans Namuth, Claes Oldenburg, Sean Scully and Antoni Tàpies. Extracts of the interviews to accompany the works will be available.

Peppiatt’s friendships and frequent studio visits with these artists and many more give a unique perspective on their life and work.

Peppiatt explains how an interview would often illuminate an artist's work not only for the spectator but for the artist himself, clarifying the daily struggle in the studio or opening up new lines of enquiry. “Reading an artist’s own words is captivating because it brings us closer to the essence of that artist.” explains Nicholas Maclean. “The exhibition is inspired by the intimacy which pervades the dialogues in the book.”

Michael Peppiatt is a leading authority on Alberto Giacometti and Francis Bacon. His biography of Francis Bacon, Francis Bacon: Anatomy of an Enigma, a New York Times ‘Book of the Year’, is considered the definitive account of Bacon’s life and work. Critically acclaimed Peppiatt has written extensively on modern art and curated numerous exhibitions. Peppiatt was an art critic at the Observer before moving to Paris and becoming literary editor for Le Monde and arts correspondent for the New York Times and the Financial Times. In 1985 he became editor and publisher of the Paris-based review, Art International. Peppiatt returned in 1994 to London, where he lives with his wife, the art historian Jill Lloyd, and their two children. This exhibition is his second curatorial collaboration with Eykyn Maclean.
