Works by David Hockney and celebrated Neo-Romantic Keith Vaughan are going on display at the University of Hull Art Collection following the largest bequest ever made to the University.
Five line-drawing prints by Hockney plus a variety of Vaughan works including oils and sketches are among a 48-strong bequest from the estate of the late George Holt.
Holt read English at the University and graduated in 1969. From there, he went on to teach music in London, where he managed to build up an extensive collection of modern British art despite living on very modest means.
John Bernasconi, Director of Fine Art at the University of Hull, said: “This is the largest bequest the Collection has received in nearly fifty years of its existence. We have always benefited enormously from the generosity of supporters and it is deeply encouraging that this continues.”
