DESCRIPTION

A new art exhibition at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery. When you visit an exhibition in an art gallery sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start. This exhibition aims to help you look closer at art by using a small selection of largely unrelated paintings to illustrate some of the clues to look out for. Rather than focusing on the movements, history and terminology of art, Look Closer explores subject matter and composition, as well as the artist’s possible motives for creating the piece.
