The first major survey exhibition of British artist Eileen Cooper RA brings together over 40 works created across Cooper’s 40-year career.

Her work is presented in parallel with paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and sculpture from Leicester’s Art Collection featuring Paula Rego, L.S Lowry, Peter Doig, Pablo Picasso and Therese Lessore.

Eileen Cooper first drew attention in the 1980s with her commitment to figurative painting. She is known predominantly as a painter and printmaker, but her work extends into drawing, collage, ceramics and sculpture.

The exhibition looks at areas of artistic influence and themes in art history that have informed Cooper’s works. Together with where ideas and inspiration come from, and how museum collections have impacted on artists today.
