Artists’ postcards from 1960 to the present day from the Jeremy Cooper Collection.
Over the past few years, Darbyshire has framed Jeremy Cooper’s collection of artists’ postcards from around the world. Art Circuit will be touring a selection of the collection around provincial museums and galleries throughout the UK, beginning in August 2014 at the Atkinson Gallery, Southport. The collection has been accepted as a gift by the British Museum where it will receive a substantial exhibition and catalogue in 2018.
