Joan Thorne – Light, Layers, Insight at Barry Art Museum:
The Barry Art Museum is presenting its first temporary exhibition, featuring the complex chromatic work of American abstract painter Joan Thorne. This retrospective, organized by Museum staff, consists of 30 large-scale oil paintings on canvas spanning the artist's career from the early 1970s to 2018. Trained at New York University and Hunter College under Tony Smith in the 1960s, Thorne burst onto the New York art scene as one of the few women included in the 1972 Whitney Annual show.

TODAY'S SHOWINGS AT BARRY'S MEMO ARTS CENTRE:

Exhibition On Screen: Lucian Freud – A Self Portrait:

For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits.

The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.

Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation. This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity for EXHIBITION ON SCREEN to reveal the life’s work of a master in one show. TICKETS: £10.
