Bryan Ferry's Art Collection On Display This Weekend in London

Roxy Music's picture could adorn an encyclopedia entry on "art rock", so it shouldn't be a surprise that RM frontman Bryan Ferry has amassed a notable collection of British paintings from the early 20th century. The singer, who studied fine art at Newcastle University and who put his fondness for British mythology on record in 1982's Avalon, will exhibit his holdings in a show called Modern British Masters: Pictures from the Bryan Ferry Collection this weekend at the London International Fine Art Fair. Artists include Duncan Grant, Augustus John (whose painting is pictured above) and Walter Sickert, the Impressionist some suspect to be Jack the Ripper.
