Choice: IAIN GALE
Tuesday 03 January 1995
Lest we forget our own strong record of collecting, it is worth paying a visit to the Garman Ryan collection, on permanent display in its refurbished Walsall Gallery. The collection, presented in 1973 to the borough by Epstein's widow, Kathleen Garman, includes masterpieces by Turner, Whistler, Rossetti, Rubens and others.
Would-be British collectors should visit the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy this week. Traditionally Old Master in flavour, this year the fair makes a foray into modernity, ranging from some important Munch lithographs and De Koonings atSusan Sheehan to new prints by Lichtenstein and Hockney at the Alan Cristea Gallery (formerly Waddington Graphics) and Peter Howson's harrowing character studies (above) at Flowers Graphics.
