Who was Poussin?

Serious, academic, intellectual – that is often how Poussin is perceived – but look closer and you’ll see an artist whose works are joyous, mischievous, and surprisingly fun.

Ahead of our exhibition ‘Poussin and the Dance’ opening in the autumn, discover the man behind the paintings – including the unique methods and obsession with dance that made him both a stand-out artist and choreographer in his own right.
