The Tate has been very lucky to be given a collection of popular and valuable paintings from a British couple who share a love for British artwork.

 The collection of paintings that include art by David Hockney, Lucian Freud and Jacob Epstein have been presented to the Tate by Mercedes and Ian Stoutzker a couple with a passion for British art work and now live in Austria.

It was only last year when the generous couple donated £500.000 for a new concert hall at the Royal Welsh Collage and was named after his mother.

Sir Nicolas Serota, Director of the Tate said “Gifts and bequests from major collectors are the foundation of the national collection”.The Stoutzkers have added exemplary individual paintings by two generations of British artists and have greatly enriched the national collection of art after 1960”.
