A Yorkshire Bequest
Two of our long-standing patrons, Terence Bacon and John Oldham, have generously promised to bequeath nearly 100 art works from their private collection to The Hepworth Wakefield.
The collection, lovingly built up over many years, features a significant number of vessels by many of Britain’s most acclaimed ceramicists, including pioneering studio potter Dame Lucie Rie (1902-95), Angus Suttie (1946-93), Alison Britton (b. 1948) and 43 works by John Ward (b.1938). The gift also includes paintings and works on paper by important British artists Craigie Aitchison, Leeds-born Trevor Bell (1930-2017), Sir Terry Frost RA (1915-2003), Rose Hilton (1931-2019) and Euan Uglow (1932-2000).
