The Schreiner Collection: A Recent Bequest

1 February 2019 - 24 March 2019

This exhibition honours the legacy of Deneys and Else Schreiner, who were staunch supporters of the arts.
 
The Schreiner Gallery was named after them many years ago. Following Else’s death in August 2018, the Gallery received thirty two works from their collection as a bequest, some of which are on display here.
 
Else said there were no decisive factors in their collection habits, apart from fun. They often bought items because they were beautiful, affordable or made them laugh. Scattered throughout the house were portraits, etchings, watercolours, drawings, sculptures, ceramics and weavings. Each piece had a story, but their collection wasn’t planned.
