The title of this exhibition related to the fact that Wilson often painted several versions of a particular subject and was copied during and after his lifetime. It included an X-ray photograph by Kate Lowry of the painting P114 Solitude - I, which revealed new aspects of the picture and shed light on Wilson's working methods. The exhibition also featured the following works from the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery:
