This exhibition explores how artists including Eric Gill, Oskar Kokoschka and Richard Hamilton have used different print processes to convey the personalities and circumstances of sitters as colourful as Quentin Crisp, Lucian Freud, Frank Bruno, Robert Plant  - and even an entire House of Commons – and also their relationships with the artist portraying them. Co-curated by postgraduate students from the University’s Art History, Film and Visual Studies department, the display is the third a collaborative series of exhibitions.
