Join Exhibitions & Displays Curator Louisa Briggs as she discusses the work of one of Britain’s most important abstract painters, Bridget Riley.

Rising to prominence in the early 1960s with her striking black and white paintings, Bridget Riley began to incorporate colour into her work in 1967. This significant moment of change coincided with Riley’s work being shown at the 1968 Venice Biennale, where she became the first British artist to win the International Prize for Painting.

Find out more about this pivotal period in Riley’s career and the works on show in the exhibition Bridget Riley: Venice and Beyond, Paintings 1967-72.
