Trouble and Strife


Please note that this exhibition has now finished.

Manet’s ‘The Execution of Maximilian’ and John Opie’s ‘Murder of Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral’ are both dramatic paintings representing the tragic culmination of political power struggles. To complement their exhibition the Front Room will be displaying selected 2D artwork by talented Kent-based artists that have used similar themes of struggle and conflict in their work. Selling exhibition.
