His early figurative paintings secured him a place, alongside Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon, Frank Auerbach and R.B. Kitaj, as a member of the so-called School of London group. Andrews was one of the most elusive members of the group due to his methodical way of working and the relatively small output of 250 paintings. As Frank Auerbach once said “Mike is so economical: he paints nothing but masterpieces”.

In this Show and Tell we will explore a selection of correspondence, exhibition files, source material and photographs, reflecting Andrews’s meticulous research and working methods, his relationships with his contemporaries and his place in British art history.
