Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts Norwich
"An amazing collection in a spectacular modern building. What a great visit!" - SCVA Visitor, 2000

The Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection is housed in two distinctive buildings by Lord Foster. Combining modern Western art with fine and applied arts from Africa, the Pacific, the Americas, Asia and Egypt, mediaeval Europe and the ancient Mediterranean, the Collection contains some 1,200 objects reflecting over 5,000 years of creativity. It is particularly well known for works by Francis Bacon, John Davies, Alberto Giacometti and Henry Moore.

The Sainsbury Collection is a very personal one and this makes it particularly special. Many of the artworks here were purchased because of the instinctive response that Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury felt upon seeing them. Step into the Living Area and you can experience the sensuality of their Collection for yourself. Look out for our diverse programme of special exhibitions too.
