Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924 - 2005)

The Campus Collection of Fine and Decorative Art began to develop soon after the foundation of the University when it commissioned portraits in oil, marble and bronze, of distinguished University figures. Since the 1960s the Campus Collection of Fine and Decorative Art has developed through commission, purchase, loan and gift to include a variety of styles and genres of work by many acclaimed artists, such as Peter Lanyon, John Bratby, Sonia Lawson, Eduardo Paolozzi and Barbara Hepworth. These works are displayed throughout departments and spaces inside and outside, and across the campuses in Edgbaston, Selly Oak, Birmingham city centre and Stratford-upon-Avon.
