This Spring Rugby’s renowned collection of 20th century and contemporary British art is being exhibited and curated around the theme of portraits. Telling the story of some of the artists within the Rugby collection with help from loans from The National Portrait Gallery and The Lowry. The loans, which are all self-portraits, include Lucian Freud, Edward Bawden, Eduardo Paolozzi and Lowry.

The exhibition will also showcase new works added to the Rugby Collection, as well as some of the old favourites.

Visitors will also be able to get involved with the exhibition by adding their own ‘selfie’ to the changing gallery of faces.
