Friends excursions: HSBC corporate art collection
Join Friends on this private tour of the intriguingly diverse art collection owned by HSBC, led by the Art Manager and an expert from Sotheby’s.
HSBC’s art collection reflects the changes made throughout the company’s history, from its establishment in the Far East, through to its acquisition of Midland Bank in 1992. Friends can enjoy a discussion on the scope of the collection, which is rich in both Chinese and British art.
After an introduction to the collection led by HSBC’s Art Manager, an expert from Sotheby’s will give a focused talk on nine extraordinary paintings by L.S. Lowry. Friends then have an opportunity to explore the rest of the collection independently, which includes works by Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and Walter Sickert.
