Opie's own works are brought together with pieces from his private art collection in order to explore the connection between the two.

 

During the course of his career Opie has collected a wide range of art, from Japanese prints and landscapes to 17th and 18th century paintings - such as those by Cornelius Johnson - as well as an Egyptian funerary mask and other pieces of ancient sculpture.

Here, we see how his interests as a collector have influenced his contemporary practice; for example, his preoccupation with historical traditions, such as portraiture and landscape.
