Peeping Tom was a late addition to the 11th century tale of Lady Godiva and her powerful husband, Leofric, Earl of Mercia. Peeping Tom was defined in the 17th century as “a curious prying fellow” and that definition is analogous with the idea of an artist today as someone who looks where others overlook or dismiss.The exhibition brings together many small works by various artists. Assembled together the works present a view into the multifarious interests of the artists involved - a spectacle for the scopophiliac.
