​From Charlotte Mullins's opening editorial on the nature of art collecting to a Q&A with Rijksmuseum director Wim Pijbes, the latest issue of the Art Fund's magazine is full of exclusive content for Art Fund members.

The Preview section is your comprehensive guide to the best art on show across the UK, plus reviews of the latest art books and features: Mark Sheerin shines a spotlight on the museums and galleries of the south east and Matthew Sweet reflects on Kenneth Clark's landmark series Civilisation ahead of Tate Britain's summer exhibition.

Bettany Hughes opens the Features section with a look at the facts behind Viking legends, followed by Julian Opie's article reflecting on how collecting has influenced his art. Hugh Pearman talks to Jonathan Ruffer, the man behind Auckland Castle's multi-million pound renovation, Alex Danchev reflects on American businessman Henry Pearlman's remarkable collection of Cézannes and Averil King examines the state of Russian art.

In the Review section, Art Fund director Stephen Deuchar discusses the Art Fund's latest campaigns, chairman David Verey underlines the economic value of culture and curator Stephen Coppel's article on Picasso's late linocuts introduces a round-up of the works supported by the Art Fund this quarter.
