Date: Thursday 6 April 2017, 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Venue: York Art Gallery

YMT Card holders are invited to be the very first to see the first solo exhibition of York born artist Albert Joseph Moore since the artist’s death in 1893. Featuring more than 20 paintings and watercolours, it will highlight the beautiful and classical women for which the artist is most famous and demonstrate the modernity of Moore’s approach. Organised in conjunction with Museum De Buitenplaats, in Eelde, Netherlands, the exhibition features examples of Moore’s youthful Pre-Raphaelite works as well as the hauntingly beautiful classical figures of his mature style.

Laura Turner, Senior Curator of Art, will be giving a special introductory talk on the exhibition at 2pm and again at 3pm.
