“Behind the Mask Gallery”

The touring exhibition was the biggest collection of BAFTA-winning actor portraiture ever assembled with portraits of over one hundred international stars of the big and small screen. The images in “Behind The Mask” represent the who’s who of actors who have won or been nominated for a BAFTA since 1954. Our gallery portrays the launch night at the exhibition.

BAFTA Archive & Heritage collects, protects and celebrates the rich heritage of BAFTA, the UK’s leading independent charity supporting, developing and promoting the art forms of the moving image since 1947.

Colin Simpson, Principal Museums Officer for Wirral Museums said of the exhibition:

“We are delighted to be able to show Dr Gotts work in the Williamson, it is our largest photographic exhibition to date and we hope we will attract a diverse audience from those who appreciate seeing the candid way that the celebrities have been represented and those who admire his skill in achieving his unique results”
