To coincide with the 60th anniversary year of Jacob Epstein’s death, in 2019 we are celebrating sculpture in all forms throughout our Collections programme.
The Sculpture in Focus trail positions a key piece of contemporary sculpture from our Permanent Collection within each of our ten themed collection rooms, featuring diverse artists including Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Polly Morgan, Bob and Roberta Smith and Hermione Wiltshire, continuing our tradition of making links between historic and contemporary art.
