As You See Me

As you see me is a brand new and original exhibition of British portraits. The aim is to reveal the history of the technique that underpinned it from 1723 up to 1925, known as sight-size. Sight-size is a way of working from nature to the scale of life, so that the finished portrait has the very presence of the sitter. The first part of the exhibition will include portraits by Sir Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough. Bringing the tradition of sight-size technique right up to date, the main part of the exhibition will showcase the work of Salisbury based portrait painter Nicholas Beer, whose work is a contemporary expression of the tradition.
