This collection is comprised of an extraordinary group of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century paintings collected largely between 1908 and 1923 by sisters Margaret and Gwendoline Davies. By 1914, the Davies sisters had assembled one of the finest collections of European modern art in Britain, with works from artists such as Paul Cézanne, Camille Corot, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Joseph M.W. Turner, among several others.
