Discover works by Pablo Picasso, Edgar Degas, Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse and more, drawn from our collection.

Our collection of Modern British art is widely celebrated, but did you know that we also have some remarkable works made beyond these shores?

From French Impressionism to American Abstract Expressionism, this exhibition spans 100 years of Modern art and features over 40 internationally celebrated artists. Discover stunning prints by Pablo Picasso, Paul Cézanne, Georges Braque and Henri Matisse alongside abstract works by Paul Klee, Hans Hartung and Pierre Soulages. Come face to face with portraits by Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Georges Roualt, Käthe Kollwitz and Marie Laurencin. This will also be the first chance to see Édouard Vuillard’s Modèle assise dans un fauteuil, se coiffant (c.1903) after its recent careful conservation.

We will reveal the fascinating stories behind our remarkable collection of international work. Our permanent collection is made from a number of individual collections donated to us over the years. These collectors range from the criminologist Elizabeth Burney to Michael Woodford, a former binman and school caretaker, who amassed a collection including works by Pablo Picasso.
