The art of Paul Gauguin isn't exactly unknown (to say the least), yet there's never been an exhibition exclusively of his portraiture - until now. See how the artist put his own twist on the traditional genre of painting as he walked away from impressionism and dove into the murky seas of symbolism.
If you're searching for a clue to how much women feature in the traditional narrative of Victorian art, look no further than the Pre-Raphaelites, a group of artists who literally self-identified as a 'brotherhood'. This major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery is the first show exclusively dedicated to asserting the importance of twelve women to the artistic movement. Names to look out for include Elizabeth Siddal, Joanna Wells and Evelyn de Morgan.
Harmony Hammond was an important member of feminist art movements in 70s New York. This small exhibition at White Cube Bermondsey - the first European solo show for the artist - focuses on her thick, textured canvases perforated with splits, holes and gaps. The show also includes 'Bag VI' a work from the 70s made of painted recycled material.
