British Portrait Prints from the Clifford Chance Collection


In an exploration of British printmakers from the twentieth and twenty-first century, the Sir John Soane's Museum is holding Face to Face, and exhibition featuring British Portrait Prints from the Clifford Chance art collection.

Clifford Chance is an international law firm that has been collecting original artist prints for over twenty years, and they are currently sharing forty works with the public that are rarely seen on display. Among these include works by Patrick Caulfield, David Hockney, William Hogarth, Gavin Turk, Peter Howson, and Gary Hume. Style range from abstract to realist and caricature to portraiture.

Face to Face offers a rare opportunity to see a selection of pieces from the Clifford Chance Art Collection. Nearly 40 artworks rarely seen by the public will be displayed in the gallery space at the Sir John Soane's Museum, exploring the themes of realism, abstraction, process, caricature and social commentary through the medium of portraiture and self-portraiture.

Running until the 24th January 2015, entry is free, but visitors can also book 10 tickets to a Q&A focussing on Why Contemporary Artists Make Portraits in Print, to be held in the 3rd November.
