Art Now: Raqib Shaw: Tate Britain - Millbank, London

7 October - 17 December 2006

In October 2006 Raqib Shaw exhibited as part of Tate’s Art Now, a series of exhibitions at Tate Britain focusing on new work by emerging artists. For his exhibition Shaw took as inspiration the work of Hans Holbein a Sixteenth Century German artist and printmaker. It was Hans Holbein’s painting The Ambassadors that Shaw first encountered on arriving in London from Kashmir at the tender age of sixteen.
