Discover what made Augustus John such a towering figure of British Art in the early 20th century.

An exceptional draughtsman and portraitist, Augustus John was also known for his Bohemiam lifestyle. This exhibition, the first major retrospective since 2005, focuses on John's early to mid-career, examining his reputation and looking in-depth at his achievements in drawing and etching.

Around sixty works will be drawn from a wide range of museums and galleries, including the National Portrait Gallery and Tate, as well as from private collections around the UK.

John’s close association with south-west England is highlighted, from the landscape to authors connected with the region such as TE Lawrence.

This exhibition is part of RA250, supported by Art Fund.
