artists & participants
The renowned film critic and author, Alexander Walker (1930-2003), who reviewed for the Evening Standard for over forty years, left his extraordinary collection of more than 200 twentieth-century prints and drawings to the British Museum. Artists represented include Jasper Johns, Lucian Freud, Philip Guston, Bridget Riley, Rachel Whiteread and David Hockney, as well as Picasso, Matisse and Miró. Walker was a highly discerning collector of modern art, with an eye for works which showed a new direction or turning point. His collection represents the largest and most significant bequest of modern works that the Department of Prints and Drawings has received in the past fifty years.
