This exhibition explores how artists have been influenced throughout their careers by looking back at the history of art. It demonstrates how artists reference the past in the compositions and the techniques they employ to create their artworks. One of the unique selling points of the Ulster Museum Art collection is the paintings gifted by Sir John Lavery, and this exhibition uses these paintings to make connections with the historic art collection and reveal ‘stolen’ ideas and techniques. Providing an unexpected interpretation of familiar works, you will be sure to see some of our most well-loved paintings in a new light.
