The guest curator, Paula Rego, has chosen the title Thresholds for this selection of prints, drawings and photographs that date from the beginning of the 20th century. Rego claims that the link between the 50 works on display is one of anticipation, containing an element of suspense. The people illustrated are “on the brink of something.”

This is the fourth Whitechapel exhibition in a series sponsored by the British Council, which has an extensive collection of British art. For 75 years the British Council has been displaying this collection around the globe with the aim of maintaining “cultural relations with foreign countries and now they would like to establish them with British people themselves by displaying the works here.
