A look at humanity through the eyes of a female collector.

A collection of works on paper bequest by Elizabeth Mary Parker (née Burney), a criminal psychologist who was inspired to gift her collection to the gallery after attending a tour. Includes etchings by Samuel Palmer, Camille Pissarro and Käthe Kollwitz, mezzotints by Danish artist and printmaker Peter Ilsted and drawings by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Christopher Wood.

Print Room exhibitions are free to enter.

Art for her could be a consolatory echo of the more visceral and painful aspects of the human condition, but it could also be an opportunity for humour.

Will Parker (Elizabeth’s son)
