Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art

The Estorick Collection was formed by Eric Estorick (1913-1993) and his wife Salome (1920-1989) during the 1950s. The Canonbury Square building was refurbished to house the Collection and opened to the public in 1998. Nowhere else in Britain can visitors see in such profusion paintings by Futurism's main protagonists: Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Luigi Russolo and Gino Severini. The Collection also includes works by Giorgio de Chirico, Amedeo Modigliani and Giorgio Morandi.

    The Italian influence of poor art

    Commences: Wednesday 20th September 2017
    Until Sunday 17th December 2017

    Arte Povera dates from the 60s and originates with artists who used ‘poor’ materials in unconventional ways. This influence, originally from Italy, is seen throughout the world and this exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of Germano Celant’s first show (the person who coined the phrase) showing casing British artists of the genre.
