Another show to check out is Portrait of the Artist As … which is a fascinating look at how notable visionaries have presented themselves and others in their work.
One of the highlights of this exhibit is Frank Auerbach’s Lucien Freud, which saw the artist returning favour for having acted as a model for the late painter.
