Artworks from The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art, personally chosen by Chris Ingram, founder of the collection.

Providing a historical overview dating from the First and Second World Wars through to the present day, the exhibition explores each decade’s stylistic particularities. From C.R.W Nevinson’s tumultuous depiction of war in ‘Column on the March’, 1916, to Dod Proctor’s classical portraiture in ‘Golden Girl’, 1930.

In recent years, The Ingram Collection has come to encompass contemporary art as well as modern, and this exhibition includes several works by the young and emerging artists represented in the fast-growing Young Contemporary Talent strand of the collection.

Modern British and contemporary art are brought together in this exhibition to form new and interesting relationships, as in the case of Barbara Hepworth’s Sculpture with Colours and Strings, 1939/1961 and new acquisition Blue Bonnet, 2018 by Phyllis McGowan.
