The term “School of London” – adopted by R. B. Kitaj in 1976 to refer to the many outstanding artists based in London who drew and painted the human figure – has often been applied to a small group of six painters: Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, R. B. Kitaj, Leon Kossoff, Lucian Freud, and Michael Andrews. — Pushkin Museum of Art
Formular in use in the catalogue that accompanies Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, and the School of London, an exhibition in the Pushkin Museum of Art organised in collaboration with Tate Modern. The design of the catalogue is quite straightforward, but ABC Design found opportunities to play with type. Note the colored footnote markers and the rotated captions.
