Bernard Cohen painting displayed at Tate Britain

We are pleased to announce that Early Mutation Green No. II, 1960 is now on display as part of the Walk Through British Art collection at Tate Britain until January 2023.

In this painting Bernard Cohen has used contrasting forms to create a sense of the process of change suggested by the word ‘mutation’ in the title. Cohen has juxtaposed the geometrical shapes of the arch and circles with the amorphous quality of the shape at the bottom of the canvas. The visual relationship between these two elements is the subject of the painting. Cohen said that, in combining two different types of shape such as these, he could create an overall image that was new and unique.
