MAG Unlocked: Portraiture Revisited

Berni Searle, Untitled (Red). From the Colour Me series, 1998

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.


An online talk in two parts exploring portraiture in Manchester’s art collection.

What do portraits tell us about both the artist and the sitter?

Why do so many artists paint self-portraits?

With examples from the collection at Manchester Art Gallery, guide Debbie will explore the nature and meanings of portraits through history and into the present day.

This talk is online as a Zoom webinar.

Please book through Eventbrite and login details will be emailed to you 2 hours before the start of the event.
