The David Ross Collection

About

Saturday 23 November 2013 - Sunday 9 February 2014

The highlight of Lakeside's winter season, this is the first public exhibition of one of the most important collections of late-twentieth century and contemporary art in private hands.

David Ross is perhaps the best known as the co-founder in 1991 of The Carphone Warehouse, today Europe's largest independent mobile phone retailer. Since 2003, he has been involved in leading may other public and private companies, as well as pursuing a passion for the arts, sports and education through the David Ross Foundation. He is also a trustee of the National Portrait Gallery.

The guiding principle behind the David Ross collection is of art produced during his own lifetime, and it is particularly rich in paintings by artists associated with the Pop Art movement of the 1960s invluding David Hockney, Peter Blake, Richard Hamilton and Patrick Caulfield. The legacy of these artists and their engagement with commercial and popular forms of visual culture is also apparent in more recent works by Young British Artits - Damien Hirst, Marc Quinn and Gavin Turk.

Other painters who came to prominence in the 60s but who worked in a more expressionist manner, such as Frank Auerbach and Leon Kossoff, are also richly represented.

This exhibition also includes: Derek Boshier, Gilbert & George, Howard Hodgkin, Allen Jones, R.B. Kitaj, Michael Craig-Martin, Bridget Riley, Mario Testino and Joe Tilson.
