Bridget Riley’s early breakthrough encounter with Georges Seurat’s Bridge at Courbevoie, a highlight of The Courtauld’s collection profoundly shaped her artistic development. This exhibition brings together the copy that Riley made of Bridge at Courbevoie in 1959 with Seurat’s original painting to consider this remarkable moment of artistic connection and inspiration.
Dr Karen Serres introduces us to the exhibition Bridget Riley: Learning from Seurat and the work of Bridget Riley, one of the leading artists of her generation, in our latest video.
You can see more videos from The Courtauld on our YouTube channel.
Bridget Riley: Learning from Seurat will be on display until 17 January 2015
