Take One Picture

Children inspired by Pintoricchio’s Penelope with the Suitors

9 May – 12 August 2018

Sunley Room

Admission free, donations welcome

This year's exhibition takes you on a magical odyssey of creativity, encountering women of power and mythical and magical sea creatures along the way

For the 23rd annual Take One Picture exhibition, primary schoolchildren have responded to Pintoricchio's Penelope with the Suitors.

From studies in portraiture and printmaking to flag designs and depictions of voyages, the exhibition celebrates the work of children from 27 schools across the UK. 

Their creative responses reflect the richness of Homer's epic story of Odysseus and Penelope, which children discovered in Pintoricchio's painting.
