Spotlight: the Estorick Collection

Explore the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art​, a delightful collection represented by Bridgeman known for its Futurist works and figurative art and sculpture.

 

Opened in 1998, the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art is a London-based, Grade II listed Georgian town house filled with a plethora of art by Modern Italian artists.

The collection is known worldwide for its core of Futurist works and figurative art and sculpture ranging from 1890 to the 1950's. Bringing together some of the most important works by Italian artists during the first half of the twentieth century, the Estorick Collection is Britain’s only museum devoted to modern Italian art.
