From the Musée d’Orsay celebrating 150 years since the birth of Impressionism, to Scotland’s Perth Museum uncovering the origins of the unicorn, there is a delightful smorgasbord of art exhibitions waiting to be explored over the next couple of months.

If you’re a little lost on where to start, here’s our handpicked selection of the crème de la crème:

‘Angelica Kauffman’ at Royal Academy of Arts (London, UK)

Described by one of her contemporaries as “the most cultivated woman in Europe”, 18th-century Swiss artist Angelica Kauffman is the focus of a major exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. The show traces her journey from a gifted child to a renowned painter sought after across Europe for her neoclassical portraits of women and mythological scenes. The exhibition also highlights her pivotal role in founding the Royal Academy, and her later career in Rome. Visitors can explore her paintings, preparatory drawings, including noteworthy self-portraits, and admire her ceiling masterpieces created specially for the Royal Academy. Don’t mind if I do!

The exhibition will be hosted at the hospital from 1 July to the end of September.

The artwork featured in the exhibition, titled “Love, Food and Life”, mostly comes from two sources. One part is art made by patients who were treated for eating disorders at the Center and their families, the other includes works submitted by artists who suffer or have suffered from eating disorders. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, collages, writings and craft items illustrating the experience of suffering from eating disorders. The artworks are displayed against pink and blue backdrops representing stronger and calmer emotions.
