Echoes

Echoes, a new exhibition from the Museum's Madden-Arnholtz Collection of Old Master prints, offers an opportunity to reflect on perennial human and artistic concerns and explores many of the themes also seen in the Joule Archive works. This include perceptions of beauty and the body, decay, dissolute lifestyles and the relationship between popular reportage and art.
These issues which were important for Francis Bacon also preoccupied the thoughts and practices of such Old Masters as Durer, Rembrandt, Hogarth and Goya, whose works are included in the exhibition.
