The Hepworth Wakefield

The Hepworth Wakefield

Tim Sayer, a former BBC Radio 4 newswriter, has been collecting for over fifty years. His first purchase in 1962 was a portfolio of one hundred and eighty early prints, from which a selection is presented here. Since then, Sayer has collected consistently, and although always purchasing with modest means, he has amassed a collection that includes works by some of the twentieth century’s greatest artists. In July 2015, Tim Sayer and his wife, Annemarie Norton, visited The Hepworth Wakefield for the first time. They were so impressed that they decided to donate their collection of over four hundred works of art to the gallery, making it one of the largest bequests to a public institution in the United Kingdom in recent years. The collection consists of paintings, sculpture, works on paper, tribal art, antiquities and ceramics - as well as an extensive library.  About one hundred of these works have been brought together here for this display, celebrating the bequest.
