A Radical Light at The National Gallery

I mooched over to the National Gallery to see what was on there. I’d not heard of “A Radical Light“, which is the Sainsbury Wing exhibition. This is perhaps not surprising. It’s an artists’ art exhibition. The Divisionists were a bunch of disparate late 19th century artists in what was a rather shaky country called Italy. They were the precursor for the Futurists (Wikipedia is your friend), who are Well Known. But it’s basically Seurat with a conscience. Uninspiring. And again, they didn’t have a postcard of my favourite one. Don’t go. Unless you can get in for free. And even then…

Sorry National Gallery. But there’s populist and then there’s über-esoteric. 3/10
