Summer and Smoke

Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre, Rebecca Frecknall's shiveringly beautiful production of Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke transfers to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre. Trapped between desire and a life of obligation, Alma meets John and her world turns upside down. This emotionally wrought drama explores the complex nature of body and soul, religion and indulgence versus sacrifice.

Gainsborough's Family Album

The National Portrait Gallery brings together all surviving portraits of Thomas Gainsborough's daughters for the first time for its major new exhibition, Gainsborough's Family Album. The exhibition will showcase the twelve portraits, which feature the Gainsborough girls as young children right through to fashionable adults. Items such as The Artists Daughters chasing a Butterfly and The Artists Daughters with a Catwill go on display alongside other rarely seen paintings, including the double full-length of Mary and Margaret Gainsborough as sumptuously dressed young women, and some never before seen in the UK such as an early portrait of the artist's father John Gainsborough. Despite starting out with landscapes - his preferred art form - Gainsborough went on to become one of Britain's most successful eighteenth-century portraitists and this will provide the perfect chance to admire his work.

Regarded as one of the greatest portraitists of the Italian Renaissance, Lorenzo Lotto portrayed a cross section of middle-class sitters and played with symbolism to add meaning to his portraits. Alongside his paintings of clerics, merchants and humanists on display at the National Gallery are some of the objects they were painted with - carpets, sculpture, jewellery, and other personal belongings - each hinting at the social status, interests, and aspirations of his subjects. The first exhibition of Lotto's portraits in the UK, it reveals fascinating information about the sitters, recorded in the artist's own account books.
