Overview

Kathleen Garman set about creating an art collection with her friend Sally Ryan. Together, Kathleen and Sally formed a collection that is intimate, adventurous and eclectic, encompassing works by some of the greatest names in European art - Durer, Rembrandt, Constable, Van Gogh, Monet - as well as sculptures, vessels and votive objects from African, Asian, Oceanic and South American cultures. The collection provides important insights into the work of Jacob Epstein himself. Through a rich array of his drawings, paintings and sculptures, it is possible to chart the sculptor's long, productive and often controversial career. Now housed in a new purpose-built gallery in the centre of Walsall, not far from where Kathleen Garman spent her childhood, the Garman Ryan Collection represents in every sense "a shared vision".
