Britain as seen from a foreigner’s perspective. This intriguing exhibition covers life in Britain from the 1930s on, from King George VI’s coronation to images of the London Underground, with pictures by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and Bruce Gilden among others, chosen by the photographer Martin Parr. Catch it before it goes — www.barbican.org.uk/strangeandfamiliar at the Barbican Art Gallery, EC2, until June 19.
The ever-watchable Helen McCrory stars in the Terence Rattigan play The Deep Blue Sea at the National Theatre over the summer.
The play reunites McCrory with director Carrie Cracknell, who directed the actress in Medea at the National two years ago.
McCrory plays tragic postwar heroine Hester Collyer, who at the start of the play is found by her neighbours at her Ladbroke Grove tenement flat after a suicide attempt. Her story unfolds: the tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot followed by her abandoning her respectable life as the wife of a High Court judge; the cruelty of her new lover, a man damaged by his war experiences; the emotional breakdown and the loneliness as she is rejected.
Ralph Fiennes and Vanessa Redgrave lead a starry production of Richard III at the Almeida Theatre over the summer, directed by the theatre’s artistic director Rupert Goold.
Whilst Fiennes and Redgrave have not appeared on stage together before, they have acted alongside each other on screen, also doing Shakespeare — in Fiennes’s directorial debut of Coriolanus in 2011.
The Dulwich Picture Gallery is hosting the first retrospective of early 20th-century modernist artist Winifred Knights, reuniting her paintings for the first time.
Winifred Knights’s most famous picture, The Deluge, was painted in 1920 when she was just 21 years old, and it won the Prix de Rome, despite being submitted unfinished. The painting of a biblical scene of panic as women flee The Flood usually hangs in Tate Britain, although it has been lent to the Dulwich Art Gallery for this exhibition. It is often mistaken for a Stanley Spencer.
Cecily Brown was the one that got away, a painter who graduated from Slade School of Fine Art in 1993 at the height of the ‘Young British Artist’ scene that dominated British art though the 1990s. Brown moved to New York and started gaining recognition for her semi-abstract pictures of bodies in large-scale varnished paintings — her style compared to Francis Bacon and Paula Rego, among others. Her paintings have a fierceness and the nudes for which she is famous appear to be in motion; she is never still.
