The Triumph of Painting, the title of a three-part landmark exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London, refers to painting as the fundamental root of artistic expression. At the start of the twenty-first century, when every possible medium is valid as a creative means and the artistic options are endless, we are in fact witnessing the vigorous reassertion of painting. Unlike previous painting traditions, painting in Europe in the nineties advanced with new and wilder references to the whole realm of visual culture, embracing architecture, advertising, cinema, fashion and, in particular, photography.

The first and second parts of The Triumph of Painting contain the work of the most influential artists of the present European generation. A third section opens up the work of the most exciting emerging young painters, whose influences can in many cases be traced directly back to the work in the preceding parts. The Triumph of Painting is the first publication to make the vital currents of this new art coherent, defining how painting has survived into the new century in the face of the barrage of imagery from other media.
