"The Late Works" showcases one of Britain's most influential artists, tracing a path through his career until his final unfinished, and unseen, work -- "Le Chef d'oeuvre inconnu (a) (b) and (c)".
The exhibition includes more than 30 of Richard Hamilton's paintings, some of which have never been seen by the public before. Of the themes covered, the exhibition is particularly strong in his exacting attention to single-point perspective; the theme of beautiful woman and desire; and his later interest in space and perspective works.
The National Gallery is one of the world’s greatest galleries, with over 2,000 works on display by artists like Cézanne, Constable, Monet, Rembrandt, Renoir, Titian, Turner and Van Gogh.

Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure – 26th June to 8th September 2013 This interesting exhibition will combine the art of Vermeer and his 17th-century contemporaries with rare musical instruments and songbooks from the period. By juxtaposing them with real instruments from the period, you will be able to see the difference between the real objects and the way in which the painters chose to represent them.
