We’re really sorry, but the Grimshaw exhibition in the Art Gallery and the West Wing of the Rotunda Museum are currently closed due to water leaks following recent heavy rainfall. We’re working to open them again as soon as possible – thanks for your understanding. 

Who Am I?

Open Tuesday - Sunday | 10am - 5pm 10 - 5pmFree with an Annual Pass (£3 / Free under 18s and registered carers)

A range of portraits of local people, artists, royalty, and the aristocracy from the Scarborough Collection.

Exploring the role of portraiture in art, the exhibition also features a portrait of the Scarborough hotelier and art collector Tom Laughton by Bruce Turner (1894-1963). Laughton donated several of the portraits to Scarborough Art Gallery, including that of the French Empress Eugenie.

The earliest painting in the show will be a late 16th century portrait of an unknown man by an unknown artist, donated to the collection in 2022.

This exhibition is located on the first floor of the gallery. There are 23 steps to this floor and at the moment we do not have a lift to access this level.

Toilets are located on the first floor and are accessed via the stairs. There is an accessible toilet next door, a short distance away, at Woodend Gallery and Studios.
