This exhibition will consist of  30 American and British works of art, a number of which come from a private collection and have not been seen for 40 years.

The American Ashcan School is represented by William Glackens (1870 – 1938), Robert Henri (1865 – 1929), George Luks (1866 – 1933), and John Sloan (1871 – 1951), all members of The Eight. Other American pictures include two rare watercolors by Charles Prendergast (1863 – 1948); a drawing by Elie Nadelman (1882 – 1946); and a watercolor by James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903). Among the contemporary American works are a painting and a cloisonné pear jewel by Robert Kulicke (1924- 2007); a watercolor by Albert York (1928 – 2009); and a remarkable woven silk and plumage minime by Sheila Hicks (born 1934).

The British Bloomsbury School is represented by works by its founders Vanessa Bell (1879 – 1960) and Duncan Grant; pottery by Quentin Bell (1910 – 1996); and a rare and notable oil and silver foil painting by Dora Carrington (1893-1932), who was the subject of  Carrington, the 1995 film starring Emma Thompson.
