Bequeathed by the collector Philip Granville, this collection comprises 168 items of graphic art from 20 countries, representing the work of some of the world’s finest artists working in this medium.

The mural-like series ‘War Orchestra’ (six sheets) by the Croatian artist Boris Bucan is perhaps the highlight of the collection, while work by the German artist Gerhard Voigt uses a repeated image of a music stand, expressing the use of music itself, here using the idea of rhythm as a design. Two large posters by the advertising company Bartle Bogle Hegarty (1992) graphically illustrate early images for the new Sony Walkman. Many were on display in an exhibition at the Royal College of Art in 1993.
