Recent research into the oil paintings in The Garman Ryan Collection has uncovered a hidden gem. 'The Page Boy', illustrated here, was previously thought to be a work by the School of Veronese from the 16th century. The National Inventory Research Project has revealed that it is most probably a work by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo from 1740-50. The painting will be on loan to The National Gallery, London and then to The National Gallery of Scotland this autumn, in an exhibition which will highlight the most significant findings of the project.

The Garman Ryan Collection
Kathleen Garman, lover and later wife of artist Jacob Epstein, and her life-long friend Sally Ryan, a talented sculptor, created this intimate, adventurous and eclectic art collection. The galleries chart the long, productive and often controversial career of Sir Jacob Epstein and his extraordinary circle of family and friends including Augustus John, Modigliani, Gaudier-Brzeska and Lucian Freud. 
Works by well-known European artists include Monet, Rembrandt, Constable, Van Gogh and Picasso. A new website of the life and image:  Pierre-August Renoir Olive trees at Cagnes-sur-Mer-ca, 1903-1919, The Garman Ryan Collection. The work of Jacob Epstein can be found at the  Epstein website
