Challenge your knowledge of art history with a visit to this exhibition, as the artist uses photography to recreate famous works of art.

Anna’s first pastiche photograph, ‘An Allegory of Modern Marriage’ (after Van Eyck’s Arnolfini Portrait) won an award from the South West Academy and went on to be hung at the 2014 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. This success was repeated in 2018 when ‘The Moaning Geezer’ and ‘Klimt in the Care Home’ were hung by Grayson Perry in his Yellow Gallery at the RA.

In her work, Anna Grayson invites the viewer to have fun and to engage both with her photographs, and with the original masterpieces that inspired her.

The work on show in the exhibition is available for purchase via the shop at RAMM.
