This exhibition explores the relationship between artist and model through a series of portraits and figure studies.

The relationship between artist and model is one of the most powerful dynamics in art. As well as celebrating the ability of the artist to capture their sitter, this exhibition will reconsider the importance of the sitter as muse, inspiration, antagonist and confidante.

The exhibition includes paintings, drawings and prints by Frank Auerbach, John Bellany, Gwen John and RB Kitaj.
