Sainsbury heaven

A pleasant surprise during a casual visit to Norwich recently (for the first time) was the immensity of the permanent collection as the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.

The presentation of art from across time and place continues to inspire and surprise and uniquely presents art as a universal global phenomenon. For example, on view in the Living Area Gallery, the collection includes major holdings of art from Oceania, Africa, the Americas, Asia, the ancient Mediterranean cultures of Egypt, Greece and Rome, Medieval Europe, and including a significant number of works acknowledged as seminal examples of European modern art, like  Picasso,  Degas,  Bacon,  Epstein,  Moore,  Giacometti and superb  Modigliani nudes.
