Laurence Harbottle through The Art Fund

The Laurence Harbottle Gift extends the Whitworth's existing holdings of the work of Brabazon, Cox and Holland, which are already quite extensive. The Portico of Greenwich Hospital joins a nationally important collection of more than 50 works by David Cox, making it an especially appropriate gift for the Whitworth.
