Special exhibition celebrates gift of Rhoda Pritzker Collection of modern British art

A special exhibition highlighting the collection of modern British art formed by journalist Rhoda Pritzker (1914–2007) is currently on view at the Yale Center for British Art.

The collection represents a major gift to the center from the Libra Foundation, established by the family of Susan and Nicholas Pritzker. Featuring more than 100 works of art, mostly drawn from Rhoda Pritzker’s intensely personal collection, “Modernism and Memory: Rhoda Pritzker and the Art of Collecting”also includes loans from the Pritzker family, presented alongside more than 50 related objects from the center’s extensive holdings of 20th-century British art. The exhibition aims to offer a richer understanding of Pritzker’s collecting style while showcasing developments in the work of a number of notable British modern artists.
