The Estorick Collection

The Estorick is home to a timeless collection of modern Italian art, writes Andrew Mead

Northampton Lodge, a late-Georgian villa at the corner of Canonbury Square in Islington, north London, was once the home of Basil Spence’s practice and later that of Sandy Wilson’s. But for the last 10 years it has served as a gallery, housing the Estorick Collection of modern Italian art. Tate director Nicholas Serota led the tributes at the recent anniversary party, while Michael Estorick – son of the collection’s founder – launched a funny but blistering attack on the philistinism of the current government.
