MAG Unlocked: Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Our guides delve into the Manchester collection and present a monthly talk via Zoom. Exploring ideas, thoughts and a range of perspectives, these sessions are a great way to get to know to the gallery and its artworks from the comfort of your own home.


Join tour guide, Pauline, as we look at mirrors in art. We’ll discover the first time a mirror was represented in an image and how artists use this device to give depth and mystery to a picture. Manchester Art Gallery has many mirrors showing reflections within its wonderful collection.
