Professor Lewis and Mrs Mary Elton recently donated a substantial art collection to the University of Surrey. Their generous gift includes works by Picasso, Chagall, Klee and Cocteau, along with other paintings and objets d'art.
Professor Elton was Head of Physics are Battersea College of Technology, accompanying it in its relocation to the University of Surrey. At Battersea he started a project in 1963 to show original art in the Physics Department. When the University Gallery was relocated in 1997 it was thought highly appropriate to didicate the gallery to Lewis Elton.
The exhibition at The Lightbox Gallery will feature works from the collection.
