Art has a boundless capacity to affect our emotions. Whether reflecting our deepest fears or filling us with joy, it can be a profound reminder of what it means to be human.

Bringing together three of the UK’s most significant private art collections on public display, this immersive exhibition will explore the power of art to make us feel. Highlights from the Fleming Collection, the Ingram Collection and the Jerwood Collection will take visitors through a spectrum of emotional states, from fear and anxiety to happiness, hope and serenity.

Discover work by some of Britain’s best-loved artists, including Elizabeth Blackadder, David Bomberg, Elisabeth Frink, Peter Howson, Chantal Joffe, HaYoung Kim, R.B.Kitaj, C.R.W. Nevinson, Eduardo Paolozzi, Fiona Rae, Eric Ravilious, Anne Redpath and Graham Sutherland.
