Last chance to see The Radev Collection at Victoria Art Gallery
Time is running out to enjoy an exquisite collection of late 19th/20th Century art at Bath & North East Somerset Council's Victoria Art Gallery.
The Gallery's exhibition 'The Radev Collection: from ****arro to Picasso' – featuring a stunning display of British and French art – draws to a close on 18 November 2012.
The collection is named after Mattei Radev, who reached Britain in 1950 as a stowaway escaping Communist Bulgaria. He drew on all his hard work and skill to become a prominent picture framer.
The exhibition in the lower gallery offers a rare treat to view previously-unseen works by Amedeo Modigliani, Georges Braque, Ben Nicholson, Graham Sutherland, John Piper, Duncan Grant and many other famous artists.
