Exhibition at the Tate Britain, London, 24 November 2022 - 26 February 2023

British artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye (1977-) is acclaimed for her enigmatic portraits of fictitious people. Her paintings often allude to historic European portraiture - notably Thomas Gainsborough, Francisco de Goya, John Singer Sargent and Edouard Manet - yet in subject matter and technique her approach is decidedly contemporary. Through her focus on the depiction of imagined black characters Yiadom-Boakye's paintings raise important questions about identity and representation.

This exhibition catalogue offers the most extensive overview of Yiadom-Boakye's work to date. It includes thematic essays and in-depth discussion of the development of the artist's practice. It also positions Yiadom-Boakye's extraordinary creative output over the past twenty years within a wider history of portraiture and representation, with a particular focus on black subjects.
