The Second Hand: reworked Art over time   

CURATING THE ART MUSEUM DISPLAY           

18 June – 19 July 2015

 

Complimenting this years Summer Showcase is The Second Hand: Reworked Art Over Time from the MA Curating the Art Museum students. This display looks at a range of works, historical and contemporary, in a variety of media, which involve one artist actively engaging with the work of another. In some cases this involves physical reworking of the original object, but in others it can mean altering, completing or challenging another artist’s idea.

Jonathan richardson by himself   

THE GILBERT AND ILDIKO DRAWINGS GALLERY DISPLAY

24 June - 20 September 2015



Jonathan Richardson the Elder (1667 – 1745) was one of the most influential figures in the visual arts of 18th century England. A leading portrait painter, Richardson was also a theorist and an accomplished poet and amassed one of the great collections of drawings of the age.

Towards the end of his life Richardson created a remarkable but little known series of self-portrait drawings. They show Richardson adopting a wide range of poses, guises and dress, in some cases deliberately evoking other artists, such as Rembrandt, whose work he owned.

These remarkable drawings show Richardson considering and making visual the different aspects of himself. But much more than this, they were the means with which he reviewed his life and achievements.
