Our modern art collection encompasses a huge range of styles, techniques, and ideologies, and features rare artworks from the 20th century, as well as contemporary prints. The artists brought together in this collection are united by their innovation, experimentation, and rejection of traditional notions of art.

Modern art rejects the representational and realistic depictions found in traditional art and embraces new interpretations and representations of the world. Modern art can be traced back to the late 19th century when certain artists shifted towards non-representational art and focused on personal experiences and emotions. This freedom broadened artistic expression and the forms, materials, and techniques that could be used to create artworks. All the artworks in this collection, whether they were created in the 20th century by familiar names such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Joan Miro, or by up-and-coming contemporary artists, challenge traditional artistic conventions, explore new concepts and materials, and reflect the changing world. Whilst the rare and collectible artworks in the Modern Art collection range from Pop Art to Minimalist, Surrealist to Cubist, and Abstract Expressionist, the contemporary artworks show how Modern Art continues to evolve and expand, with contemporary artists embracing digital technologies, conceptual art, installation art, and interdisciplinary practices. Explore our extensive collection to see how Modern Art remains dynamic and ever-changing, provoking audiences to engage with art in new ways and inviting dialogue about the nature of art, its purpose, and how it connects to society.
