Face to Face: Portraits Through Time
Explore a centuries-old fascination with capturing our own image. Snapshots of ordinary people sit alongside Henry VIII, Marilyn Monroe, David Bowie and Princess Diana.
Investigate why we make portraits and the hidden messages that they are trying to convey, through paintings, photographs, sculptures and interactive activities.
The National Portrait Gallery has generously supported this exhibition with ten loans from the Collection. The Arts Council Collection, The Courtauld Gallery and Photo Archive Miners have also kindly loaned works for the exhibition.
