Introducing the Jerwood Collection: A Curator’s Choice was the first exhibition of a year-long residency at The Harley Gallery (https://www.harleygallery.co.uk/). Lara Wardle, Executive Director Jerwood Foundation, chose some of her favourite works from the collection. Many of the works are connected to each other, either through the subject matter depicted, or the artists themselves: some artists taught other artists; some were friends; some related; and others were rivals.


Some of the paintings tell part of the wider Jerwood story: prizes that have been awarded or early career artists that have been supported.


This online curation is a selection of works featured in the main auditorium.
