16 Tate artworks have been paired with related works in The Garman Ryan Collection, linked either by artist, subject or theme. Included are key examples of work by Eric Gill, Cedric Morris, John Nash, Picasso and Rodin.
The Garman Ryan Collection was formed by Sir Jacob Epstein's widow and gifted to Walsall in 1973. Amongst the 365 artworks are many by Epstein and his circle, including Gaudier-Brzeska, Augustus John, Matthew Smith and Lucian Freud; as well as by leading 19th century European masters Constable, Degas and Pissarro. It includes many parallels with works from Tate's extensive collections of British and European art and we are privileged to have the opportunity to display some fantastic examples in this exhibition, highlighting standout works from both collections.
