Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art information
The only gallery in Britain devoted to Italian art, and one of the leading collections of futurist painting in the world, the Estorick Collection is housed in a listed Georgian building and stuffed with works by such greats as Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Gino Severini and Amedeo Modigliani.
The collection of paintings, drawings, etchings and sculpture was amassed by American writer and art dealer Eric Estorick and his wife Salome. Well-conceived special exhibitions have included many 20th-century art movements and lesser-known artists from Italy and beyond. The gallery also encompasses an extensive library, cafe and shop.
