The Phelps Bequest

Thursday, 19 April | 11.00 am - Thursday, 23 August | 4.30 pm

| Free

This exhibition brings together some of the paintings, drawings and prints given to Swindon Museum and Art Gallery by local man Fred Phelps, during the 1940s and 1950s. They include drawings, watercolours and paintings by some of the most popular artists of the early 20th century including Lord Methuen, Claude Francis Barry and John Skeaping.

Phelps also helped establish the museum’s purchase fund, which continues to support new acquisitions to this day. This exhibition pays tribute to his foresight and generosity.
