Nicole Farhi: Heads and Hands
23 February – 16 June 2019
Gainsborough’s House, Suffolk

In 2015 Nicole Farhi, sculptor and former fashion designer created a bronze bust of Thomas Gainsborough for Gainsborough’s House. Four years later we are delighted to announce a solo exhibition of sculptural portraits of heads and hands by the artist.

The exhibition includes busts of some of the great artists of the past 100 years including Lucian Freud (1922-2011), Francis Bacon (1909–1992), but perhaps most notably, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005), Nicole Farhi’s great friend and mentor. Influential figures from stage and screen are represented through the heads of Sir David Hare, Tom Stoppard, Judi Dench and Helena Bonham Carter.
