Inspire is drawn from the School of Art’s extensive fine art collection and illustrates its development and the contributions of the individuals whose personal enthusiasms have shaped the collection: George Powell of Nanteos, Gwendoline and Margaret Davies of Llandinam, Sir John Williams, Dr Elvet Lewis, and the numerous friends and former students of the University who have contributed financially or made individual gifts and bequests of works of art.

The exhibition brings together a wide range of paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, private press books and some objets d’art. Included are paintings and drawings by Edward Burne-Jones, Edward Poynter, D G Rossetti, Simeon Solomon, Graham Sutherland; prints by George Chapman, Raoul Dufy, Stanley Hayter, Fernand Leger, Henry Moore, and Pablo Picasso; photographs by Carlo Bevilacqua, Guiseppe Cavalli, Mario Giacomelli, Angus McBean and Erich Lessing.
