Poole Museum - 'Augustus John: Drawn from Life' exhibition Steward

Purpose:  

The role is to steward a major exhibition of the work of one of the towering figures of twentieth century British Art at Poole Museum in 2018. ‘Augustus John: Drawn from Life’ will open on 26 May and run until 30 September. This will be the first major exhibition focusing on the career of Augustus John (1878-1961) since ‘Gwen John and Augustus John’ at Tate Britain in 2005. In his day Augustus John was considered one of the leading artists at work in Britain.
