In Relation: Nine Couples who Transformed Modern British Art
16 Jun - 9 Sept 18
What happens when art and love collide?
In Relation brings together the work of nine artist couples who made an indelible mark on British art.
In this diverse exhibition, we consider how these iconic romantic partnerships inspired experimentation and collaboration, and radically altered the course of each artist's creative life.
Featuring major loans and works from RWA's permanent collection, In Relation includes some of Britain's most influential couples, including Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth; Laura and Harold Knight; Dod and Ernest Procter; Eric Ravilious and Tirzah Garwood; Robert MacBryde and Robert Colquhoun; Rose and Roger Hilton; Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, Mary Fedden and Julian Trevelyan; Phyllis Barron and Dorothy Larcher.
