‘Rolf Harris: Can you tell what it is yet?’ is a major retrospective of legendary artist, musician and TV personality, Rolf Harris.
It features an eclectic range of paintings, memorabilia and much more from the UK’s best selling published artist and well loved entertainer.
The original works on display range from Rolf’s early days as a student to paintings he created at lightning speed in front of a TV camera.
The exhibition also includes some of his most impressive and well known pieces, such as his iconic portrait of Her Majesty The Queen. There will also be self-portraits, portraits, paintings of wildlife, urban and rural landscapes and studies of people and everyday life from home and abroad on display.
The range of subjects reflects the wide range of experiences and locations that Rolf has encountered in his personal life and his long and illustrious career.

I went today thinking I would be about an hour but I spent 2.5hrs as there is so much to see and hear. Apart from the paintings the audio visual displays are so good.
There are also plenty of free family events during the summer.
It is one of the best exhibitions I have seen at the Walker, and my friends are all raving about it
