The Saatchi Gallery will present Part Three of its 20th anniversary exhibition The Triumph of Painting from 4 November 2005.

Artists to be exhibited in Part Three are Dana Schutz and Inka Essenhigh, two of the leading young women artists working in America; Matthias Weischer and Eberhard Havekost, two leaders of the new generation of emerging German painters; Michael Raedecker, an artist present in the collection since studying at Goldsmiths in 1997 and Dexter Dalwood, a cult figure amongst young British artists, who has successfully debuted at the Gagosian gallery in America.
