Lord Leighton

Three exhibitions celebrate the centenary of the only artist ever elevated to the peerage. The Royal Academy has the paintings - neo-classical tableaux, demure portraits and essays in covert eroticism. The V&A unveils Leighton's frescoes. Leighton's house has been arranged as it was during his lifetime.

RA, London W1 (0171-439 7438) Thurs to 21 Apr; V&A, London SW7 (0171- 938 8500), Thurs to 8 Sept; Leighton House, London W14 (0171-361 2295), Fri to 21 Apr

Georgina Starr

For "The Hungry Brain", Starr has used video to create a personal universe inhabited by a weird cast of characters, often played by the artist herself.

Tate Gallery, London SW1 (0171-887 8000), today to 7 Apr

Cezanne

One of the major exhibitions of the decade. Here is the real Cezanne, at once analytical formalist and passionate, frustrated artist.
