David Milne was one of Canada's greatest modern painters, but also one of its best-kept secrets. This exhibition will showcase, for the first time in the UK, a wide selection of his oil paintings alongside watercolours, drawings and photographs, to reveal an artist of true originality and vision.
23 May - 9 September
Edward Bawden was a master printmaker, illustrator, watercolourist and designer and is today recognised as one of the most influential artists of his generation. Whilst he is perhaps best-known for his commercial work for companies such as Twinings and Fortnum & Mason, a significant body of work remains relatively unknown. This exhibition will re-introduce Bawden as a hugely versatile artist, who effortlessly pushed the boundaries between fine and commercial art.

Ribera: Art of Violence will be the first UK show of work by the Spanish Baroque artist and printmaker, Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652), bringing together his most sensational, shocking and masterfully composed work. This exhibition will explore for the first time the theme of violence in Ribera's work to demonstrate how his images are neither the product of his supposed sadism but rather involve a complex artistic, religious and cultural engagement in the depiction of bodily suffering.
