The Priseman Seabrook Collections were established by British artist Robert Priseman and his wife Ally Seabrook in 2014 and are housed in north east Essex. The focus of each collection is on painting and drawing made by hand. The collections are formed into three categories – ‘21st Century British Painting’, ‘20th and 21st Century British Works on Paper’ and ‘Contemporary Chinese Works on Paper’. The ‘Contemporary Chinese Works on Paper’ collection is focused on small handmade works on paper created by leading Chinese artists practising in the twenty-first century. It is cross-generational and explores the output of artists who were born before the ‘Cultural Revolution’ such as Jiao Ye and Zhong Xiaojing, those who grew up in the wake of the Revolution like Wang Fenghua and Liao Zongrong, and those born under the ‘One-Child Policy’ such as Su Jie and Zhang Danni. We especially welcome loan requests from schools, not-for-profit galleries and art museums in the UK and abroad. We have worked with, and continue to work with, venues including the Museum of Richmond, London, Huddersfield Art Gallery, University of Suffolk, The Minories Art Gallery, Colchester, Ipswich Museums and Gallery, China Academy of Art, Shanghai, XAFA, Xi’an and Jiangsu Arts and Crafts Museum, Nanjing. Priseman Seabrook can be contacted via email ([email protected]) to discuss requirements, terms and the availability of work for the preferred time scale. The collections are not open to the public otherwise.
