From Modern Love to Royal Academy

THIS is the last chance for fashion lovers to see the Modern Love exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery.

The exhibition, showcasing a selection of some of the world’s most influential designers from the past 40 years, closes this Sunday.

But Bendigo Art Gallery director Karen Quinlan said there is "a lot to look forward to".

Genius and Ambition: the Royal Academy of Arts, London 1768-1918, which is touring Australia for the first time, opens on March 2.

About 100 works will be featured in the exhibition including pieces by Thomas Gainsborough, John Singer Sargent and Henry Fuseli. 

The exhibition is the first from the Royal Academy in its 245-year history to be showcased in Australia. 

The works are being flown over from London in the first two weeks of February.

Later in the year art aficionados can also look forward to The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece, from the British Museum which opens on August 2.
