Capturing the sensuous, immediate and intense experience of life in paint, the All Too Human exhibition celebrates painters in Britain who strove to represent human figures, their relationships and surroundings in the most intimate of ways.


‘Philosophy in the Gallery’ is a collaboration between The Centre for Philosophy and the Visual Arts at King's College London and Tate, supported by the Cultural Institute at King's.
