At first glance Room 9 looks like any other in the gallery. But way the paintings are displayed (we call it the ‘hang’) isn’t how they’re normally arranged. While one of the sitters looks away from us, the rest follow her gaze, staring out at the same view as her.
Instead of hanging pictures at eye height, for us to consider up close, Leo is instead asking to focus on where they’re looking. What are they all looking at?? Like Leo, are they breaking with convention?
This hang on display at the Walker Art Gallery until 17 March 2019.
