Death: A Self-PortraitDeath is the somewhat sombre subject of the Wellcome Collection's latest exhibition which showcases 300 works assembled by Richard Harris, a former antique print dealer based in Chicago. Rare prints by Rembrandt, Durer and Goya are among the various items displayed which include anatomical drawings, plaster-cast bones and human remains. The exhibition is divided into five themed areas including violent death which invites the viewer to address the horrors of war and death on a mass scale. A programme of events and talks which tie in with the exhibition help to open up a "more serious conversation about the subject of death that we need to have in our society" - which was Richard Harris's original intention in creating his collection.

In addition you'll find the famous Wellcome Library, cafe, bookshop and a 'forum' to consider issues of science, health and human identity. The 1,300 objects on display show the great variety of considerations that these topics include. More about Wellcome Collection
