This major survey exhibition brings together over 40 works created across Eileen Cooper’s 40-year career presented in parallel with paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and sculpture from Leicester’s Art Collection by artists including Paula Rego, L.S Lowry, Peter Doig, Pablo Picasso and Therese Lessore.
Parallel Lines will look at the areas of artistic influence and themes in art history that have informed Cooper’s works and their natural parallels within the Leicester collections, while also considering where ideas and inspiration come from and how museum collections have impacted on artists today.
