Private tour of Simmons & Simmons modern and contemporary art collection

Private View | Simmons & Simmons

Monday 18 January 2016 - 18:30

Leading UK law firm Simmons & Simmons has been collecting modern and contemporary art since the 1980s. Initially concentrating on purchasing small paintings and drawings by British artists of the modern period (including Vanessa Bell, David Bomberg, Roger Fry) and prints by established contemporary British and American artists (including Howard Hodgkin, Leon Kossoff, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg). In 1993, the law firm decided to diversify and add works by young British artists who were exhibiting in various venues in and around London (including Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, Jake and Dinos Chapman), several of whom went on to win the Turner Prize.

Stuart Evans, founder and curator of the collection will lead the tour.

Please note: Meet at 6:30pm to or start the tour promptly at 6:45pm.

This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
