Our art

Discover new perspectives on British art from 1900 to now

Using our collection and exhibitions, we tell the story of Modern British art

Since the late 19th century, Western society has changed dramatically. The development of our modern cities, technologies, not to mention the devastation of two world wars has transformed every aspect of our lives – including art.

From Post-Impressionism to Cubism, Neo-Romanticism to Pop and Neo-classicism to contemporary art, our collections and exhibitions tell the story of Britain through the eyes of some of the most important British artists, including Keith Vaughan, Edward Burra, Graham Sutherland and Barbara Hepworth.

Second only to the Tate for Modern British art.
