Each spring Rugby’s nationally renowned collection of 20th century and contemporary British art is exhibited and curated around a varying theme to encourage new readings and audiences. This year the theme of the exhibition is portraits, telling the story of some of the artists within the Rugby collection with help from loans from The National Portrait Gallery and The Lowry. The loans, which are all self-portraits, include Lucian Freud, Edward Bawden, Eduardo Paolozzi and Lowry.
