The Last Bohemian: Augustus John
Until 30/08 – Lady Lever Art Gallery
This brand-new exhibition showcases around 40 works by one of Britain’s most iconic and controversial artists. Having moved to Liverpool in 1901, the new exhibition explores his time in the city which greatly influenced his life and career. Often described as bohemian, John’s paintings were uncompromising and famously captured the true character and personality of each sitter. Taking the spotlight, Lord Leverhulme’s infamous ‘beheaded’ portrait examines the extraordinary events that provoked Lever to destroy his own portrait and when leaked to the press, caused outrage and protests.
