Over 100 Wood’s artworks, including paintings, sculptures, and engravings, will be on display during the week starting today. Many of them have not been shown before. Some were created during quarantine, others can be called Wood’s “greatest hits”. Among them is a large painted tapestry based on the famous photo shoot for Beggar’s Banquet album, which was released in December 1968.
The proceeds from the exhibition will be transferred to the National Health Service of Great Britain.
