Blind and partially sighted visitors are invited on an audio-described tour of the exhibition, Helene Schjerfbeck, followed by refreshments and a handling session.

Join us for an early morning, audio-described tour where we’ll introduce the mesmerising paintings of Helene Schjerfbeck (1862–1946), one of Finland’s best kept secrets. Through over 60 portraits, landscapes and still life paintings, this survey show traces the evolution of her remarkable career from her early naturalistic style, honed during her studies in France, to her highly abstracted self-portraits. It is the first-ever exhibition to present Schjerfbeck’s work to UK audiences.

Following the tour we’ll explore a range of handling materials that offer insight into the development of her work and shifting styles throughout her career.
