Jake is pleased to confirm details for Vanitas, a brand new solo exhibition of oils and drawings, due to open this autumn. Held at the superb Mougins Museum of Classical Art in France, the show will run from 15th October 2021 until 30th January 2022.
The Mougins Museum has a collection of ancient artworks from Roman, Greek and Egyptian times amongst others. These are displayed alongside paintings, drawings and sculptures by artists including Henri Matisse, Paul Cézanne, Man Ray, Auguste Rodin, Marc Quinn, Antony Gormley and Damien Hirst.
Vanitas was produced during the COVID-19 lockdowns. It features a series of works inspired by the great still life paintings of the Golden Age.

This will be the second European destination Jake's work in recent months, as his painting Long after the Birth of Venus made its way to Germany for an exciting group show at the Pulpo Gallery, Murnau. The exhibition, (Re)Birth of Venus: Renaissance Painting 2.0 opened on 9th July and runs through to 22nd August 2021. You can read more about the exhibition and see all the works online by clicking here.
Finally, after what can only be described as an unprecedented and challenging year for everyone, Jake would like to express his gratitude for the continued support he has received from collectors and supporters.
