Love Stories – Art, passion & tragedy
More than 100 portraits from the National Portrait Gallery, London
This exhibition is an ode to love in all its forms. From romantic love to the obsession artists have with their muses, from love tragedies to love that triumphs against all odds. Over 100 portraits tell the stories of the world’s most beautiful and high-profile love stories. Together, they paint a moving picture of how love and desire have influenced portraiture over the centuries; from 16th-century paintings to contemporary photography. Come face-to-face with famous romantic couples like Oscar Wilde & Lord Alfred Douglas and John Lennon & Yoko Ono, and meet famous artists like Anthony van Dyck, Lee Miller, Ferdinand Bol and David Hockney.
