[Perspectives] Master copies

The National Gallery’s Painters’ Paintings exhibition invites you into the homes of eight European artists to gaze at the pictures that once hung on their walls. The acquisitions of Anthony Van Dyck, Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Lawrence, Frederic Leighton, G F Watts, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, and Lucian Freud are set out in galleries that are a cross between drawing rooms and personal pantheons. Images of the artists’ homes indicate how they displayed their treasures, and lived and worked within the powerful artistic force field they created.
