Private evening visit to the Van Dyck Self Portrait and Exhibition
Guided Tour | Turner Contemporary
Thursday 26 February 2015 - 18:00 until 20:00
Sarah Martin, Head of Exhibitions at Turner Contemporary, will introduce and give a private tour of more than 60 works from the National Portrait Gallery, dating from the 16th Century, displayed alongside key contemporary self-portraits from major public and private international collections. Central to the exhibition is Sir Antony Van Dyck's last self-portrait of 1640-1, purchased for the nation in 2014 following a joint public appeal by the National Portrait Gallery and the Art Fund. Turner Contemporary will be the first venue where visitors can see Van Dyck's remarkable self-portrait as it embarks on a major nationwide tour.
This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
