Chance, Order, Change

Abstract Paintings 1939 – 1989

Josef Albers, Bridget Riley, Victor Pasmore, Ad Reinhardt and Sean Scully: some of the most influential artists of the later 20th century feature in this exciting exhibition, which forms the centrepiece of the spring programme.

Coming to the Barber from an important private collection and never before seen together in public,  the dozen works in the show by these artists and other leading names span 50 key years in the development of modern art. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy abstract art at its purest – in a setting generally associated with more representational paintings by the old masters and great Impressionists.

The Lady Barber Gallery has been bustling with visitors this week; there are already some great comments in our visitors’ book…

“Lovely to be able to see such stunning works” – Wendy Law, Edinburgh

“Fantastic – privilege to see Albers and Pasmore up close” –  M. Andrews, Birmingham

“Wonderful collection, love the Victor Pasmore” – C. Burgess, Manchester
