Sotheby’s London and award-winning gallery The Lightbox are running an exhibition featuring sculptures and sculptors’ drawings from a major collection of 20th Century British Art, The Ingram Collection.

Forty specially-selected works by prominent artists, including pieces by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Elisabeth Frink, Kenneth Armitage and Eduardo Paolozzi, are on display in Sotheby’s New Bond Street galleries.

To accompany the works on show, photographs of the artists taken by Jorge Lewinski over the course of the last 40 years are also on exhibit.

A spokesman for the organis- ation of the event said: “This special exhibition offers a wonderful opportunity to study a survey of sculpture by the era’s leading artistic figures.”

Speaking about the prestigious exhibition, James Rawlin, Senior Director of 20th Century British Art at Sotheby’s, comments: “We are incredibly proud to host this exhibition, which brings to the public eye some of the 20th century’s greatest British sculptors.

“Not only is this a timely exhibit – given the growing interest in three-dimensional works from this period – but the exhibition precedes the first exhibition in 30 years to examine British sculpture of the 20th century at the Royal Academy. The Ingram Collection is a perfect introduction to some of the best works of this era.”

The Ingram Collection of Modern British Art, on loan to The Lightbox, consists of over 300 pieces.

It has been assembled over the course of the last decade, with no less than 65 additions in the last 18 months.

It represents an exemplary showcase of some of the finest examples of works by British artists, with particular reference to the post-war period.
