The collection brings together Italy’s finest artists during the first half of the twentieth century
In the midst of Islington there’s an unassuming Georgian building hosting The Estorick Collection; Britain’s only gallery devoted to modern Italian art in appreciation of the abstract Futurism movement led by F.T. Marinetti in 1909.
The collection brings together Italy’s finest artists during the first half of the twentieth century. These include the paintings and figurative sculptures from the likes of Umberto Boccioni and Medardo Rosso, alongside others who stamped their presence on Italian art history over the course of 100 years.
The overall theme of the collection stems from Eric Estorick’s personal taste for modern art, alongside innovations through abstract art forms across six galleries.
Many workshops are also carried out here for adults and children alike, granting a chance to get involved in learning the typical artistic processes of the movement.
The personality of Italy resonates across the globe through the history of art and food. If you’re looking for a taste of Italian art culture, be sure to visit The Estorick Collection.
