Join us for a tour of ‘Lucian Freud: The Self-portraits’ designed for wheelchair users and mobility impaired visitors.

This exhibition offers a window into the psyche of Lucian Freud through his self-portraits spanning over seven decades. For the first time ever, this fascinating body of work is exhibited together, tracing Freud’s artistic evolution from the linear graphic work of his early years to the fleshier, painterly style for which he is widely known.

When seen together, the intense self-examination of Freud’s self-portraiture encourages the viewer to reflect on life, age and their own self-image. This exhibition provides an unmissable opportunity to reflect on what happens when an artist places his own image under such intense scrutiny.

An artist-educator will guide visitors through the exhibition. The tour will be followed by refreshments and discussion. Volunteer support is provided.
