Come and see a new exhibition that delves more deeply into Plymouth's portrait collection and presents new research into some of the characters that are new or rarely seen. 'In the Frame' will feature our newest acquisition — an early self-portrait by Plympton-born 18th century artist, Sir Joshua Reynolds. This will be set amongst other paintings of artists including self-portraits by James Northcote and Edward Opie. You can come face to face with some of Plymouth's maritime greats too - from Hawkins and Raleigh to 18th century Admirals and George Gibbon, the Lieutenant Governor of Plymouth in the early 1700s, painted by Thomas Hudson. Important local faces and families will also feature — from William Cookworthy, the founder of the Plymouth Porcelain factory, to MPs and Mayors of Plymouth past, to the last town crier of Devonport.
