Jenny Saville exhibition in Oxford

Its hard to believe but Jenny Saville is having her first solo public exhibition in the UK. 
Many people first became aware of Saville's work, when she was included in Charles Saatchi's exhibition, Sensation back in 1997.
Her incredible fleshy paintings of female nudes are huge. Fulcrum from 1999 for example is some  
16 feet long. As well as the paintings she's exhibiting at Modern art oxford till the 16th of September,  she is also showing drawings at the Ashmolean museum. I think both exhibitions would
be well worth checking out this summer. www.modernartoxford.org.uk
