Painter David Bomberg (1890-1957), one of the Whitechapel Boys, was one of an exceptional generation of artists who studied at the Slade School of Art under Henry Tonks. He painted a series of complex geometric compositions combining the influences of cubism and futurism in the years just before the First World War, and later moved to a more figurative style in the 1920s, his work dominated by portraits and landscapes of nature. This major review of life and career of Bomberg features more than 70 works from all significant periods of his oeuvre.

Fans Unfolded

Norwood Gallery, Worthing Museum & Art Gallery, Chapel Road, Worthing

Saturday October 21-Saturday March 31

The fan, a fashion accessory often forgotten, is put in the spotlight in this exhibition. The museum has selected fans from its collection to explore the art, language and craftsmanship of the fan interposed with items from the collection that reflect the period in which each fan was used. “We will be exploring the imagery of the fans, how they mirrored fine art of the time as well as looking into the language of fans and how they were used as means of communicating between people, the political propaganda they represented and fans that were used for advertising, dating back to the early 1700s,” explains Gerry Connolly, the museum’s senior curator. Picture: Ivory and pique fan with painted velum leaf featuring the three magi, c1700.

Gluck: Art & Identity

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, 12A Pavilion Parade, Brighton

Until Sunday March 11

Usual admission charges apply
This major exhibition explores the life and work of the 20th century artist Gluck (1895-1978) who is now recognised as a trailblazer of gender fluidity. Born Hannah Gluckstein into a wealthy Jewish family, Gluck attended art school in London and ran away to Cornwall with fellow students during the First World War. The artist mixed with the Newlyn School of painters and adopted the name Gluck, creating a controversial masculine identity incorporating men’s tailoring, barber-cut short hair and a mannish demeanour. Gluck, who demanded ‘no prefix, suffix, or quotes’, became well known as a painter. Portraits, land and seascapes and floral paintings are all included in this show, along with
clothing, accessories, photographs, press cuttings and personal ephemera. The exhibition is part of Wear it Out, a partnership with The Centre for Fashion Curation at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. Picture above: Gluck c 1932/Howard Coster Fine Arts Society. Picture below: Gluck, Lords and Ladies, detail, 1936.

Directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris and designed by Rae Smith, it features groundbreaking puppetry work by the Handspring Puppet Company of South Africa, which brings breathing galloping horses to life on stage. Michael Morpurgo says, “After a few months’ rest, out at pasture, Joey the war horse and his great team from the National Theatre will be touring the UK again, in many places War Horse has not been seen before. I am so pleased this is happening… Steady boy, steady Joey. Trot on!” Picture: Brinkhoff&M+Âgenburg.
