From her first acquisition in the mid-1990s, Valeria Napoleone established a collection with a singular purpose: to champion the work of women artists and redress the gender imbalance she saw within the art world. Spanning painting and sculpture through to photography and installation, Napoleone’s remarkable collection has gone on to represent some of the most pioneering female artists of the past 20 years.

Discover a diverse array of work from the collection by artists including Mai-Thu Perret, Joanne Greenbaum, Margherita Manzelli and Phyllida Barlow, recently nominated to represent Great Britain at the prestigious Venice Biennale in 2017.
