How is a work of art made? Listen when curator and senior researcher Chris Fischer guides you through the exhibition Art in the Making.

The exhibition delves into the methods used by various artists, giving you rare insight into the artistic process right from the initial ideas to the fully finished work. A stellar selection of major masterpieces accompanied by rarely-seen sketches and studies allows you to trace the artists’ works and methods, exploring why and how these works ended up looking as they do.
