Exhibition: The Art of Literature: Loan and Selling

This exhibition CLOSED on Thu, 14th Jul 2022

Cost: Free of Charge


The histories of art and literature are inextricably linked: an ancient epic poem inspires an Old Master picture; a contemporary artist takes flight from a Shakespearean phrase; a medieval illuminated manuscript combines text and painting in a single beautiful object.

This exhibition brings together an extraordinary selection of masterpieces embodying this most productive of creative partnerships.

At times direct and at other times subtly allusive, the connections between art and literature explored across this exhibition offer exciting insights into the works of important artists and writers including Marlene Dumas, William Shakespeare, Peter Paul Rubens, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Lucian Freud, Joan Mitchell, James Joyce, Pablo Picasso and Peter Doig.
