"Pallant House Gallery's unrivalled collection of British Pop Art is greatly indebted to the extraordinary generosity of one of its most important benefactors, Professor Sir Colin St John Wilson ... and his wife M.J. Long. A significant proportion of their extensive collection of Modern British Art was donated to the Gallery in 2006 ... Included in this gift was a remarkable collection of British Pop Art ... This gift was further supplemented by many long-term loans from the collection ... There can be no better venue to showcase the British Pop Art collection than in the galleries its collectors envisaged"--Page 7.
