'Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector' is the first major exhibition in the UK to present the personal collections of post-war and contemporary artists. Ranging from mass-produced memorabilia and popular collectibles to one-of-a-kind curiosities, rare artifacts and specimens, these collections provide insight into the inspirations, influences, motives and obsessions of artists.
