The Barber Goes North: Treasures from The Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham

15 October - 15 December 2010

The Barber is famed for its collection of Old Master paintings, but it is also home to magnificent works on paper. This two-part display consists of a selection of Old Master drawings, including fine works by Tintoretto, Rubens, Rembrandt and Degas, and German Expressionist prints and drawings, including images by Max Beckmann, Käthe Kollwitz, and others. This display is featured at Abbot Hall as part of an exchange of works: during the same time slot works from Abbot Hall’s collection will be exhibited at the Barber in ‘A Rage for the Lakes - Forty Watercolours and Drawings from Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal.’
