Is this love?

To mark Valentine's Day, we'll be looking at two iconic works from the collection that are, shall we say, on the grey side of a loving relationship.

Lucien Freud's Hotel Bedroom and James Tissot's A Passing Storm each depict couples who are equally torn in their affections.

So what's going on in them? A lovers' quarrel? A serious argument? An indifferent ending? Let's look deeper and find out on an occasion that is all about love.

Join Manager of Collections and Exhibitions John Leroux each month for an exciting, intimate, and fast-paced look at artworks on display, designed to comfortably fit in your lunch break. \

See what these artworks say, and how they connect us with the world – how’s that for “food for thought”?
