Collectors Eric and Jean Cass recently donated over 300 important modern and contemporary artworks to the Contemporary Art Society for gifting to museums, including works by Karel Appel, Michael Craig-Martin, Barbara Hepworth, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Eduardo Paolozzi, Victor Pasmore, Pablo Picasso and Niki de Saint-Phalle.
The gift is one of the most important donations to the Contemporary Art Society in the charity’s 103-year history and totals in excess of 4 million GBP.
Developed over 40 years, Eric and Jean Cass’ collection was one of the most unique and significant collections of modern and contemporary art in the UK and was previously housed in the interiors and gardens of Bleep, their spectacular modernist home in Surrey named after the pager system that Eric Cass’ company invented.
