Victoria Art Gallery
Victoria Art Gallery is Bath’s public art museum and home to a richly diverse collection of paintings, sculpture and decorative arts. Included in the many items in its care are an original Tudor portrait of Henry VIII in the style of Holbein and works by Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Barker, Gillian Ayres, Walter Sickert, Paul Klee and Grayson Perry.
Victoria Art Gallery’s summer exhibition is Freud, Minton, Ryan: unholy trinity. For the first time these three artists will be exhibited alongside each other. In the tight community of the art world of pre-war London the three were colleagues and friends. After Minton’s suicide in 1957, Ryan and Freud drifted apart, which may have contributed towards the significance of the lonely figure in their work. The exhibition runs 10 July – 19 September 2021. Booking essential.
If you have visited the Gallery before, you may notice some procedures are slightly different to make your time a safe and enjoyable one. Online booking is essential.
