Something Old, Mostly New, Some are Borrowed, One is Blue
What’s the latest in the Sainsbury Collection?
Description: Radical and inspiring; how do these newly acquired artworks relate to other works that may have lived here for up to 50 years or could be over 1000 years old? Some are sculptures or relief, others painting or ceramic and one is definitely blue.
Guide: Chris Jones and Georgie Livingstone

20th century Woman!
The extraordinary life of Isabel Rawsthorne
Description: Isabel Rawsthorne was a painter in her own right, yet remembered more by the portraits of her by people she knew, ranging from Epstein, for whom she was a studio assistant, to Giacometti and Bacon.
The circle she inhabited was to have an important influence on twentieth century art.
Guide: Wilson Graham and Meryl Taylor
