April: Object of the Month

A second selection of work from the House at Kettle's Yard has come to the Fitzwilliam providing another opportunity to consider Kettle's Yard artists and makers in the context of their contemporaries that are represented in the permanent collection at the Fitzwilliam, including Picasso and Epstein.

This new display unites for the first time paintings and sculpture by pioneering modern artists of the 20th century, works by William Scott, Barbara Hepworth and Lucie Rie. These are works by artists who sought to make a new art, by responding to the modern world around them. The display can be seen in gallery 27.

Kettle’s Yard is currently closed for a major building project. During this period Kettle’s Yard is working with galleries across the U.K. to present works from the permanent collection to be seen in new contexts.
