From July 20th to October 27th, the RA is showing over 60 painting (mostly portraits) by the little known Finnish painter Helene Schjerfbeck.
The exhibition will be based in the Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler Galleries, on the first floor.
Ms Schjerfbeck (1862-1946) has a very light tough, and much of her thin 'scumbling' technique reminds me of Ron Kitaj.
Very much a feminine painter, she works with a beautiful sensitivity of touch.
If you're in Piccadilly whilst she's showing, it would be well worth a detour.
