Giuseppe Penone: A Tree in the Wood

Yorkshire Sculpture Park, 26th May to 28th April 2019

In the planning for many years, this is a significant tribute to a major Italian artist too little known in Britain. And there could be nowhere better than the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, with its specimen trees and rolling hills. Penone, born in 1947 in Piedmont, describes trees as “not a subject but much more, they are the substance itself of my work.” Whether his medium is bronze, clay, marble, photography, large drawings constructed from acacia thorns or entire trunks, trees have been his central preoccupation. Through them he explores the connection between the body, memory, time and our environment.

Edward Bawden

Dulwich Picture Gallery, 23rd May to 9th September

Graphic designer, book illustrator, print maker, muralist, Edward Bawden rejoiced in ordinary British life—beach holidays, farmyards, market towns, railways. And also animals (see below). He was also a fine watercolourist, jointly responsible for the medium’s 20th-century revival. This is the first full-scale retrospective since his death in 1989, and includes a number of previously unseen works. Also on view will be 18 compelling portraits from his time as a Second World War artist.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s May issue: More than a dozen writers critique the current state of economics, suggesting there are still lessons to learn more than a decade on from the financial crash. Howard Reed writes that the ideas we hold about the way economics works need to be ripped up. Ten of the world’s best living economists explain what, in their view, is the single most important lesson economics still has to learn, and Linda Yueh suggests what three of the past masters would think about economics today. Elsewhere in the issue: Vernon Bogdanor outlines why Brexit could cause a constitutional crisis in Britain; Jean H Lee explains why young South Koreans don’t want their country to reunify with their Northern neighbours; Sian Norris writes about the coming battle over abortion and shows where the UK ranks among its European peers; and Sonia Purnell profiles Jacob Rees-Mogg.
