Fitzwilliam Museum Programme for special exhibitions.
Collecting and Giving: Highlights from the Sir Ivor and Lady Batchelor bequest – 4 December 2018 – 3 March 2019 (Gallery 10).
In 2015, the Museum received an exceptional collection of paintings, drawings, ceramics, glass and bronzes from Sir Ivor and Lady Batchelor, through the Art Fund. Highlights from the collection will be on display for the first time, including drawings by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Ruskin, William Orpen, Walter Sickert and Gwen John, alongside fine examples of 18th century salt-glazed stoneware, rare 17th and 18th century Spanish glass, and 19th century French animal bronzes.
Whistler & Nature – 8 January 2019 – 17 March 2019 (Galleries 12 & 13)
Whistler and Nature explores James McNeill Whistler’s (1834-1903), revolutionary attitude towards the natural world, in works ranging from his celebrated London Nocturnes to his European coastal and pastoral scenes. 90 paintings, drawings and objects – such as Whistler’s sketchbook – shows how his vision of nature was underpinned by his enduring kinship with the makers of railroads, bridges and ships – Whistler came from a family of soldiers and engineers as well as being a military mapmaker, which shaped his attitude towards nature.
