  • The Warburg Institute is one of the world’s leading institutions for the study of art and culture. The works are donated in support of the Warburg Renaissance, the architectural and intellectual transformation of the Institute. The sales of the works will help to fund the completion of the renovation and expansion of the Institute’s home in the heart of the University of London’s Bloomsbury campus, to create a more open and accessible building and welcome in and educate a wider audience with new and dynamic public spaces for lectures, exhibitions and digital experimentation. They will also provide funding for new programmes for exhibitions, residencies and commissions for contemporary artists, writers and thinkers.
