(29.8 x 37.5 cm.) © The Estate of John Nash The Ingram Collection is one of the largest and most significant publicly accessible collections of Modern British Art in the UK, available to all through a programme of public loans and exhibitions. Founded in 2002 by serial entrepreneur and philanthropist Chris Ingram, the collection now spans over 100 years of British art and includes over 600 artworks. More than 400 of these are by some of the most important British artists of the twentieth century, amongst them Edward Burra, Lynn Chadwick, Elisabeth Frink, Barbara Hepworth and Eduardo Paolozzi. The collection's main focus is on the art movements that developed in the early and middle decades of the twentieth century, and there is a particularly strong and in-depth holding of Modern British sculpture. The Ingram Collection also holds a growing number of works by young and emerging artists, and in 2016 established the Ingram Prize, an annual purchase prize created to celebrate and support the work and early careers of UK art school graduates.
