Leo’s choice

LEO FITZMAURIC­E: BE­TWEEN YOU AND ME AND EV­ERY­THING ELSE UN­TIL MARCH 17TH As part of the Arts Coun­cil Col­lec­tion Na­tional Part­ners Pro­gramme, artist Leo Fitzmauric­e cu­rates art­works from both the Arts Coun­cil Col­lec­tion and Na­tional Mu­se­ums Liver­pool’s own col­lec­tions. A paint­ing from the Lady Lever Art Gallery called Psamathe (1879- 80) by Fred­eric Leighton has been cho­sen as the fo­cus of the ex­hi­bi­tion. The se­lec­tion of works is dic­tated by the di­rec­tion of the sit­ters’ gazes, cre­at­ing the il­lu­sion that the sub­jects of the por­traits are all look­ing to­wards the same sub­ject of Psamathe.
