This week's picture which can be seen for free on a Sunday is the Italian artist Gino Severini's 'Danseuse No 5', on loan to the Laing Gallery in Newcastle. Severini (1883-1966), a signatory to the Futurist Manifesto of 1910, moved to Paris in 1906, and the style of the 'Danseuse' (1915-16) is obviously influenced by Cubism. This painting is one of only two Severinis in the UK, and has been loaned to Newcastle as part of the Masterpiece Loan Exhibition Series. (Laing Art Gallery, 091-232 7734; 10am-5pm Mon-Fri, 2-5pm Sun, to 14 July; free.)
