Portrait of the Artist at the Queen’s Gallery - Sold out
- The Queen's Gallery |
- Visit and Talk |
- Tuesday, 15 November 2016 - 11:00 until 13:00
A private talk by the curator, Anna Reynolds, given in the Redgrave Room, is followed by time to view Portrait of the Artist, the first exhibition to focus on images of artists from within the Royal Collection. It showcases self-portraits by Rembrandt, Rubens, Freud and Hockney, and also features images of artists by their friends, relatives and pupils. This show examines themes from the ‘cult’ of the artist, the symbolism evoked through images of the artist’s studio and the role of monarchs in commissioning, collecting and displaying portraits.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
