AN exhibition of contemporary art has gone on show in Huddersfield.
It is part of a collection bequeathed to the Contemporary Art Society by the late Tom Bendhem of London.
Bendhem was an avid collector of contemporary art from the 1970s until his death in 2002.
Now a selection of works from his collection forms the basis of a touring exhibition which is at Huddersfield Art Gallery until Saturday, October 29.
The exhibition, celebrating his life and promoting collecting, also acknowledges Tom's generosity to those artists whose work he purchased, examining how he met, befriended and encouraged them, particularly those at the very beginning of their artistic careers.
Many of the artists represented in the show are also in the collection of Huddersfield Art Gallery but are here seen on a more domestic scale.
Among those in the show are Frank Auerbach, Georg Baselitz, Andy Goldsworthy, David Mach, Bruce McLean, Langlands & Bell, Bridget Riley and Bill Woodrow.
Robert Hall, Kirklees principal arts officer, said: "Tom Bendhem represents a fine example of someone who developed a significant collection on a relatively modest scale and with limited funds.
"The exhibition is a celebration of a warm, gregarious and committed collector and philanthropist."
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated colour catalogue.
