      Event: David Hockney RA: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-Life

      Location: Royal Academy of Arts, W1

      David Hockney had a blockbuster show at the Royal Academy four years ago, one of the most popular exhibitions in the RA’s history. Now he’s back, with a much smaller show of portraits that he has painted over the last three years in his Los Angeles studio.

      The portraits are of Hockney’s family and friends – Australian comedian Barry Humphries, his sister Margaret, mega art-dealer Larry Gagosian, textile designer Celia Birtwell (aka the Mrs Clark of one of Hockney’s most famous paintings — on display at the Tate Britain) and others. The paintings are all similar — the colours, the canvas size, the background, even the chair is the same, all painted in acrylic.

      Event: Great Fire Exhibition

      Location: Museum of London, EC2

      Shortly after midnight on September 2, 1666, a fire broke out in a bakery on Pudding Lane in the City of London. Within three hours the house was engulfed and fire had begun to spread through the city of closely-built, half-timbered houses, dry as a tinderbox after a long hot summer.

      The exhibition Fire! Fire! marks the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire which destroyed much of the old medieval city and became a turning point in the story of London.

      Event: Frank Cohen Collection 2016

      Location: Fortnum & Mason, W1

      Fortnum’s X Frank is a collaboration between the flamboyant private collector Frank Cohen and Fortnum & Mason, one of London’s oldest and most established department stores (founded in 1707).

      Event: Cuban Artist Wifredo Lam Exhibition

      Location: Tate Modern, SE1

      Tate Modern has a exhibition on Wifredo Lam, the 20th-century Cuban modernist, whose work is so often compared to Pablo Picasso. This is the first museum exhibition of Lam’s work in London since 1952, and is a major retrospective covering 50 years of the artist’s career.

      Lam’s modernist art spans 20th-century traditions including Cubism and Surrealism, mixed with Afro-Cuban imagery. The artist was born and brought up in central Cuba, one of eight children of a Chinese immigrant father and Cuban mother of Spanish and African descent. As an adult Lam moved first to Havana, then Madrid in 1923 to study art. He stayed in Spain for 15 years, where he met and married his wife with whom he had a son, both of whom he lost to tuberculosis in 1931. He went on to fight for the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War, eventually fleeing to France in 1938 when Barcelona fell to Franco.

      Event: The Libertine on the West End Stage

      Location: Theatre Royal Haymarket, SW1

      Dominic Cooper takes on the notoriously cocksure and dissolute but dashing Earl of Rochester on stage this autumn, playing the starring role in The Libertine by Stephen Jeffreys.

      It is the true story of John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester — a charismatic poet, playwright and libertine famous for his bawdy, obscene, verse who satirised Charles II’s Restoration court.
