An exhibition currently running at the Tate Liverpool, Portraying a Nation: Germany charts how two artists responded to the glamour and misery of Weimar Germany.

Fahrelnissa Zeid’s epic, vividly colourful abstract canvases represent a dynamic fusion of European sensibilities with Islamic, Persian and Byzantine touches—a compelling cocktail that Tate Modern will explore this summer in a major new retrospective of the artist.

A new exhibition at the Royal Academy examines the radical, deeply political russian art that flourished in the first years of the Russian Revolution. Emerging across Europe from the  early 1850s onwards, avant-garde art prized originality and radical experimentation.

In Russia it was a diverse and multi-layered movement with...
