Spotlight: 20th Century Art In Focus
14 September – 8 December 2019
Royal Holloway and Bedford New College’s art collection holds a multitude of artworks and objects from the 18th century right through to the present day. Best known for our historic art collections - mostly held on permanent display within the iconic Picture Gallery, housed within the Founders Building – this temporary exhibition highlights a lesser known part of our holdings, focusing on the works made within the early to mid-20th century.
Featuring artists such as Graham Sutherland, Dame Laura Knight, C. R. W. Nevinson, Amy Drucker, William Orpen, John Nash and many more, this exhibition brings into focus a part of Royal Holloway and Bedford New College’s collection rarely on public display, alongside a host of free talks and activities.
