About

"A fascinating show reveals John's radical side'"
Mark Hudson, The Independent

Gwen John: Art and Life in London and Paris will bring together paintings, watercolours, drawings and sketches, as well as previously unseen archival material and personal belongings. Chronologically tracing Gwen John's 40-year career, the exhibition will place her art in relation to the two cities where she chose to live and work: from her early years at the Slade School of Fine Art in London and subsequent training under James Abbott McNeill Whistler at the Académie Carmen in Paris, to her permanent move to Paris in 1904 and the life she built as an artist there.

The exhibition will draw on new research into John's connections to her contemporaries and her personal library acquired by the National Library of Wales. It will also explore the relationship of her work to that of her brother, Augustus John, and Auguste Rodin – with whom she had a ten year affair.

The exhibition is curated by writer Alicia Foster and coincides with the publication of a major biography by Foster of the same name published by Thames & Hudson.

This exhibition is a partnership between Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, and The Holburne Museum, Bath.
