Gwen John at the Holburne Museum
November 20 – 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until 14th April 2024
The first major exhibition to place Gwen John (1876-1939) in relation to the art worlds of two cities in which she chose to live and work – London and Paris. By looking beyond John’s work in isolation, or only in relation to her brother, Augustus, audiences will be able to enjoy and understand her art in conversation with her international contemporaries including Édouard Vuillard, Auguste Rodin, and poets Rainer Maria Rilke and Arthur Symons. The exhibition will also present new research into John’s female contemporaries whose work was connected with hers and personal possessions such as her crucifix and archival material which belonged to the John family.
Everyday during Museum opening hours, you can take part in free, themed creative activities in the family-friendly creative space on the ground floor.
