“This week’s TateShots sees the painter Albert Irvin visit the Tate Stores facility, where the artwork in the Tate’s collection that is not currently on show is kept. Here Albert, now in his late eighties, talked to TateShots about three of his paintings; Flodden, St Germain and Empress, pieces that he hadn’t seen since they were last on show at the Tate. Albert explained to us how and why he made the trio, as well as offering up his thoughts on his career as an artist.”
