Michael Andrews: The Thames Paintings
Michael Andrews: The Thames Paintings, 20 May20 June 1998, London
This is the first memorial exhibition of paintings by Michael Andrews (1928 - 1995). Interestingly the exhibition takes place exactly forty years after his first solo show in the Beaux Arts Gallery at 1 Bruton Place Wl, the building now occupied by the Timothy Taylor Gallery.

Born in Norwich in 1928, Andrews studied at the Slade School of Art from 1949-52 under William Coldstream. From 1954 he exhibited at the Beaux Arts Gallery run by Helen Lessore, moving to Marlborough Fine Art in 1968 when she closed the gallery. In 1972 he left Marlborough with his friend Lucian Freud to be represented jointly by James Kirkman and Anthony d'Offay. He had his first major retrospective at the Hayward Gallery In 1981 which traveled to the Fruit Market Gallery in Edinburgh and the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester. His last one-man exhibition was in 1991 at the Whitechapel Gallery. It traveled to Paris, Edinburgh and New York.

There are three Thames paintings and this will be the first opportunity to see them exhibited together.
