“The Triumph of Painting” exhibition from the Saatchi Gallery is opening another chapter of its six part showing, at the Leeds City Art Gallery (running from the 25th of January through to the 12th of March).
“The Triumph of Painting showcases an international line-up of contemporary painters and sets out to show how today’s artists, and audiences, can still be intellectually and emotionally engaged by a form of art (painting) often declared defunct and outmoded in a technological and digital age.”
The multi-part Triumph of Painting exhibition has broke the world record for visitors to a contemporary art exhibition.
“For me, and for people with good eyes who actually enjoy looking at art, nothing is as uplifting as standing before a great painting,
whether it was painted in 1505 or last Tuesday.”
