Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery’s autumn exhibition provides visitors with a rare chance to view an impressive range of expressionistic artworks from the city’s collection.

Exuding a palpable psychological intensity, the pieces explore the experiences, beliefs, fears and passions either of the people who created them or of those who are depicted.

Many of the artworks on view are receiving their first public outing, taking up positions alongside a number of favourites not seen for some time.

The exhibition includes artwork by, among others, Pablo Picasso, Ana Maria Pacheco, Frank Auerbach and the Birmingham-born David Bomberg.
