Between 1943 and 1976, local art collector and landowner HJP (or ‘Jimmy’) Bomford gave 21 works of art to Swindon. These were instrumental in encouraging Swindon to establish a modern art collection for the town. Bomford’s gift included drawings and paintings by some of Britain’s best known artists, including Graham Sutherland, Ben Nicholson, LS Lowry and Henry Moore. This exhibition brings together many of the works Bomford gave to Swindon to celebrate his generosity and vision.
