Chantal Joffe: For Esme - with Love and Squalor at Arnolfini


Recognised as one of Britain's foremost painters, Joffe explores the intimate act of painting and portraiture. Including a number of new works (many produced whilst in 'lockdown'), highlights include a series of portraits of Joffe's daughter, from older works such as Esme (First Painting) captured as a new-born swaddled in blankets, to the later, defiantly awkward Esme in White, painted within days of her sixteenth birthday this year.

Thursday to Sunday, 12pm to 5pm

Free Entry
Bookable in advance. Arnolfini asks all visitors to wear face masks.
