Lydia Corbett: La Danse de la Vie

4 - 29 November

 

Coinciding with a major exhibition of portraiture by Pablo Picasso at London’s National Portrait Gallery in October, this exhibition shows the paintings by one of his models, Lydia Corbett, or Sylvette David as she was then known. Featuring some forty paintings in pen and ink as well as oils, this collection showcases both new paintings of figures and English and French landscapes as well as previously unseen work from her studio. A selection of her ceramics will accompany this show.

 

A biographical book on Lydia Corbett’s life and work will be launched at the exhibition (further information below).
