Josef Albers, Bridget Riley, Victor Pasmore, Ad Reinhardt and Sean Scully: some of the most influential abstract artists of the 20th century feature in this exciting exhibition, which forms the centrepiece of the spring programme

Coming to the Barber from an important private collection and never seen together before in public, these 12 paintings and mixed-media works by the above – and other – leading artists span 50 key years in the development of modern art. They offer a rare opportunity to enjoy cutting-edge abstract art in a gallery generally associated with Old Masters, Impressionists and more representational masterpieces.
