Sophie Ingleby Known/Unknown - Work in progress


Aberdeen Art Gallery

31 July - 4 December

Using selected works by the society painter Philip de László, this photographic exhibition considers the legacy of a portrait. The images document the painted portraits, their owners and the range of environments in which they exist. In doing so, the work not only reflects how our culture has changed over the past century, but promotes a dialogue around the nature of collecting and remembering, and how this is influenced by class and wealth.
