Rebecca Fortnum’s exhibition at the Freud Museum in Hampstead, Self Contained, develops several strands of her recent work on the formation of identity, dreams and the power of the gaze.

The series Dream depicts children with their eyes closed in paired pencil portraits, small, intimate works in which the subjects never look back. These works will be displayed in Anna Freud’s room at the Freud Museum, along with works in silverpoint, to draw out connections with Anna Freud’s writings on the child’s relationship with the adult world.

  • Freud Museum, Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead until May 26, Wednesday to Sunday 12pm to 5pm. Details: 020 7435 2002,
