An eerie quality is created here as the woodland surrounding the concrete building takes precedence, coming alive with strange floating shapes, shadows and lights which seem to have an organic life of their own.


The oil painting Concrete Cabin by Peter Doig has recently gone on loan to the Albertina Museum in Vienna.

It’s a complicated work to loan as it is so big (2m x 2.4m) that it only just fits in the Leicester Museum & Art Gallery lift! It had to be packed into its travel crate in the Victorian Art Gallery before going out of the only exit that it would fit through and then packed into its full crate in the transporter’s van.

The exhibition at the Albertina Museum is called Edward Munch In Dialogue and features 40 works by Munch alongside works by seven important contemporary artists - Georg Baselitz, Andy Warhol, Miriam Cahn, Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas, Tracey Emin and Jasper Johns. The exhibition runs until 19th June.
