It Wasn't Just Dinosaurs That Created This Collection

Southebys:"The collection formed by Lord and Lady Attenborough focuses primarily on British art from the outbreak of the First World War to the 1960s, and features superb works by many of the best known artists of the period, including Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland, Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, C.R.W.Nevinson and L.S.Lowry. Collected over six decades, there is a continuous sense of a narrative quality running through all the works, and the remarkable paintings and prints in the collection give us a clear indication of the unerring eye of a master storyteller at work." The auction takes place November 11th, 2009 at Southebys in London.
