A Very British Collection is an exhibition of 20th Century work that provides a unique opportunity to see together both a remarkably complete collection of Camden Town and British Figurative paintings. It is also an insight into the desire to collect, and how personality can shape that process. This collection comes directly from one source and is being offered for sale in its entirety through Messums. Included are iconic works by Sickert, Pissarro, Bevan, Lamb, Gore and Manson.
Many are works that were in formative exhibitions, and most have been bought with a collector’s eye from places such as the Fine Art Society, Piccadilly Gallery, Agnews and as well as Messums.
