Catalogue Note

'The London of my memory is not the real city I live in today. Sometimes now it seems like a monster that draws you into its complicated inside. Yet, though changing all the time, its particular location - the river, the hills, the proximity to the sea - seems always present, and the millions of people who have spent their lives passing through its streets and travelling along its underground veins make London, like my studio, a place of chaos, providing an opportunity for continual involvement and activity.' (Leon Kossoff, quoted in Leon Kossoff: Recent Paintings, XLVI Venice Biennale, Amsterdam, 1995, p.10)
