Date Posted: 25/07/2014

Face to Face: British Portraits from the Clifford Chance art collection will run at the Sir John Soane Museum in London from 10th October to 24th January.

The exhibition is an exploration of the development of portraiture by British printmakers from the mid-20th and the first decade of the 21st century.

Featuring works by Patrick Caulfield, David Hockney, William Hogarth, Peter Howson and Gary Hume, among others, Face to Face offers a rare opportunity for students to see engravings, etchings, screenprints and lithographs from the award-winning Clifford Chance art collection.

William Hogarth’s Character and Caricaturas, from 1743, will also feature in the exhibition and will be on show during the 250th anniversary of Hogarth’s death on 26th October, alongside other Hogarth works in the Soane collection including masterpieces such as A Rake’s Progress and the An Election series.

The schools programme has yet to be confirmed for the exhibition.
