Frank and Cherryl Cohen at Chatsworth, 11 March-10 June

“An exhibition of modern British masterpieces, many of which have been unseen in public for decades, has opened at Chatsworth House. Private collectors Frank and Cherryl Cohen have loaned key paintings and sculptures for the show from their collection spanning the last 40 years. The exhibit includes works by artists including Stanley Spencer, LS Lowry, Edward Burra and Eduardo Paolozzi … Curator Robert Upstone has described the Cohen’s collection – which has never before been exhibited publicly – as ‘one of the finest and most definitive private collections of modern British art.'” (BBC News, 19 March 2012, here)
