Featuring works from the 17th century to the present day, the exhibition includes drawings by Angelica Kauffman, William Blake, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Frank Auerbach and Deanna Petherbridge.

German Revolution Prints, CANCELLED

Lady Lever  – May 13th 1 p.m.

A viewing of this controversial exhibition is a must for art and history lovers alike. Including works by Munch, Schiele and Kokoschka, this exhibition explores how the social, political, sexual and moral struggles taking place during the turbulent period of the German Revolution (1918-1919) moved artists to produce such dramatic imagery. The exhibition also features important prints by Gauguin and Picasso that demonstrate how artists outside Germany contributed to Expressionism.

£2.00 donation
