This exhibition celebrates the Tim Sayer Bequest, one of the most significant gifts to Wakefield by a private collector.
It will bring together approximately 100 works drawn from Tim Sayer’s collection, which he has passionately built up over the last five decades, including works by artists such as Alexander Calder, Prunella Clough, Sonia Delaunay, Naum Gabo, David Hockney, Paul Nash, Gerhard Richter and Bridget Riley among many others.
London based, self-confessed 'art-oholic', Tim Sayer a retired BBC Radio 4 newswriter with his wife Annmarie Norton, a former ballet dancer have pledged their entire collection of more than 400 works - ceramics, sculptures, paintings and works on paper, as well as a significant library of books - to The Hepworth Wakefield in his will.
Sayer was motivated to leave his collection following a visit to the Yorkshire gallery in 2015. He said: “I was amazed by David Chipperfield’s remarkable building with its sequence of ten beautifully-lit gallery spaces, and I realised that it would be the perfect home for my collection.
The exhibition will be the first time this private collection will be displayed in a public art gallery and will make reference to the domestic context of the collection which occupies almost every surface of Sayer’s home.
