Fitzwilliam Museum

This exhibition is the second of two successive selections of works on paper which celebrate the outstanding generosity of benefactors and donors who have helped to enrich the collections. It will also highlight a number of exceptional works bought with funds raised or donated by individuals, charities and other supporters. Each tells a story of disinterested commitment to giving for the benefit of others. Preserved, researched and displayed by the Museum and made globally accessible in digital form they exit the private sphere to be enjoyed by all. Thomas Gainsborough, Marie-Louise von Motesiczky, George Shaw and Glenn Brown are some of the artists represented in this exhibition.
