Tune in to Sheffield Museums' Facebook page on Wednesday 14 July at 1pm for their next online event.

Join them for a guided virtual tour of John Hoyland: The Last Paintings with exhibition curators from The John Hoyland Estate, Sam Cornish and Wiz Patterson Kelly.

Born in Sheffield, John Hoyland (1934-2011) is regarded as one of Britain’s leading abstract painters. He is renowned for his bold use of colour and inventive forms. In a career spanning over 50 years, his tireless innovation pushed the boundaries of abstract painting and cemented him as one of the most inventive British artists of the 20th century.

Discover some of the final works he created – many of which will be on display for the first time – and find out more about the making of the exhibition in this free online tour.

If you can’t make the live broadcast, the video will be available to watch later via the Sheffield Museums website.
