The Redfern Gallery is pleased to announce that the Tate has recently acquired Paul Feiler's Janicon LXII, of 2002. 

One of the largest paintings completed as part of the Janicon series, this becomes the fifth work by Feiler to be held in the Tate's permanent collection, alongside works from the 1950s and '60s, one of which - Portheras Grey - is currently on display at Tate St Ives, as part of the exhibition Modern Art and Tate St Ives
