Frank Auerbach: The Charcoal Heads, The Courtauld Gallery 9 February – 27 May 2024

A group of hauntingly beautiful, large-scale portrait heads in charcoal by Frank Auerbach (b. 1931) – considered some of his early masterpieces – will be presented together for the first time in an exhibition at The Courtauld Gallery, opening 9 February 2024.

Produced in the 1950s and 1960s during his early years in post-war London, this series of monumental charcoal heads reveal the significance of drawing to the development of Auerbach’s practice as he found his voice as a young artist. Learn more
