David Bomberg: Objects of Collection

Paintings and drawings from ‘A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection’ and the London South Bank University art collection

13 September 2013 – 29 March 2014

This exhibition has now closed. Details of our next exhibition, ‘Researching the Archive: Five Artists from the Borough Group’ will be added shortly.


This exhibition brought together work by David Bomberg from ‘A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection’ and the London South Bank University (LSBU) art collection. It was an opportunity to see these paintings and drawings together for the first time and to explore these artworks – as well as David Bomberg’s life and art practice – through a range of different perspectives.

Short texts were invited from leading curators and academics to accompany the exhibition. Each text discussed a work/s from the contributor’s own viewpoint or specialism, offering glimpses of the multi-faceted ways that this celebrated artist can be understood and appreciated. You can read the texts by going to our Digital Archive.
