Artists at Work
3 May – 15 July 2018
Discover how artists depict themselves and the practice of others in an exhibition of drawings from the 16th to the 20th century.
Looking at how artists capture their own creative practice and that of others, this exhibition presents drawings of practitioners at work. It focuses on place, from academies and studios, where details of tools and materials are recorded, to vast landscapes which almost swallow up the painter working within them. Self-portraits are also displayed, exploring their reflection of an artist’s practice and identity.
Featured artists include Lambert Doomer (1624–1700), Jan de Bisschop (1628–1671), Hubert Robert (1733–1808), Carlo Labruzzi (1748–1817), Egon Schiele (1890–1918), George Grosz (1893–1959) and Horst Janssen (1929– 1995).
