'So an artwork emerges that may look quite good for a while – airy and colourful and new. But that will only last for a day at most. Then the real work begins – changing, eradicating, starting again, and so on, until it's done' - Gerhard Richter

Here Sleigh paints her lover, art critic Lawrence Alloway, as his alter-ego, ‘Hetty’, who Sleigh described as ‘a mythological character in our love game’. This intimate early work is powerful in destabilising the notion of fixed and innate masculinity and femininity.

'Portrait of the Artist with his Wife and Daughter' is the only known portrait in which Gainsborough included himself with his family. Gainsborough holds in his hand a paper, perhaps once showing a sketch, but now transparent with age, as is the figure of the child. It has been presumed that she must be the Gainsborough's eldest surviving daughter Mary, born shortly before February 1750. The dog seems content drinking from the pond or stream slightly showing in the foreground. This painting is on display in Room 35: http://bit.ly/2EJyfYT

Rodin’s ‘The Kiss’ and ‘The Thinker’ are now regarded as masterpieces in their own right, but did you know neither of them started out as individual works? They originally formed part of his elaborate composition ‘The Gates of Hell’, depicting a scene from Dante’s ‘Inferno’. The monumental sculpture stands 6m tall and 4m wide, commissioned in 1880 for a new decorative arts museum in Paris. The museum never got built, but Rodin continued to work on this huge sculpture for over 20 years. Find out more about Rodin in our blog post: http://ow.ly/HZoo30irr5i See brilliant sculpture created millennia apart, and discover the links between them in our #RodinExhibition: http://ow.ly/ZDO330irram

Did you know all dogs evolved from wolves as a result of multiple domestication events that took place at least 15,000 years ago? Wolves have the widest natural range of any land mammal other than humans and once occupied most of the Northern Hemisphere. They have evolved with humans over time, both as workmates and companions. You can share this fact about the origins of man’s best friend as we head into the Year of the Dog this Lunar New Year! Photo: AMNH/R. Mickens
