An exhibition of work by contemporary artist Elizabeth Peyton, exploring the development of her portraiture from the 1990s to the present day.

Peyton's work has been at the forefront of figurative art since the 1990s and the exhibition will showcase some of the key portraits from her first twenty years, before going on to investigate the new direction that her work has taken over the last decade.

Peyton's work will be spread around the gallery, interspersed with works from the permanent collection. Amongst the forty pictures on display will be famous celebrities like David Bowie, Liam Gallagher and Kurt Cobain, plus famous figures like Queen Elizabeth II and Napoleon.
