Turner Prize-winning artist Douglas Gordon often raises questions about talent, virtuosity and genius in his work. Join a member of staff from Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery to find out more about his works inspired by ‘The Master of Suspense’ (Alfred Hitchcock) and one of the greatest players in the history of football (Zinedine Zidane).

Discover the links between these and ‘the leading English portraitist of the 18th century’ – Plymouth’s very own Sir Joshua Reynolds.
