Facing the Music: 20th-Century Portraits of British Composers

As part of a new partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, the Barber Institute will be exploring the close relationship between art and music.

The first in a three-show partnership between the two institutions, Facing the Music draws from the rich collections of paintings and photographs at the National Portrait Gallery and marks the first time an exhibition has been dedicated to its portraits of 20th-century composers.
