Gluck @ Fine Art Society

6 February 2017 - 28 February 2017

A major retrospective exhibition of the British painter, Gluck (1895-1978). Featuring 32 works including Gluck’s most important painting, ‘Medallion’ (1937), the exhibition will explore the fascinating life, work and legacy of one of the most pioneering artists of her generation.

The show features one of Gluck’s best-known paintings, Medallion (1937), is a dual portrait of Gluck and Gluck’s lover, the American socialite, Nesta Obermer, inspired by a night at the opera in 1936. According to Gluck’s biographer, Diana Souhami, “They sat in the third row and she felt the intensity of the music fused them into one person and matched their love.” Referred to by Gluck as the “YouWe” picture, Medallion was later used as the cover of a Virago Press edition of The Well of Loneliness.
