‘Of Exceptional and Outstanding Merit’

Treasures from the Barber Institute of Fine Arts

The Wallace Collection, London

To mark Lady Barber’s reference to the Wallace Collection as a benchmark of quality for the Barber’s own collections, key items of sculpture and decorative arts from the Barber will be displayed there.

Objects will include an ancient Greek helmet, a 14th-century French ivory casket, and the Butleigh Salt – each of which relates to objects at the Wallace.

The display will complement the Birth of a Collection exhibition at the National Gallery and explore and enhance links between the Barber and the Wallace and their respective collections.

22 May - 1 September
