Stephen Hough, Sir Thomas Allen, and Simon Keenlyside have contributed pictures to a visual reimagining of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Along with works by an impressive (and impressively diverse) collection of artists – including many award-winning painters, illustrators, photographers and architects – the paintings are being auctioned in aid of The Passage, the London homeless charity.

You can see some of the images by launching the gallery - simply click the first image above. 

The auction process leads up the annual Night under the Stars concert on November 7, held in aid of The Passage at London’s Royal Festival Hall, and which this year will focus on Russian repertoire. 

To view all 15 works, and to make bids, visit the Pictures Reimagined auction website. Bidding opens today - on World Homeless Day - and concludes on November 7, at the Night Under the Stars concert itself. For more details about the concert, follow this linK: Night Under the Stars
