In the late 1950s Alexander Orlow, the Managing Director of Turmac
Tobacco, put his love for abstract art to industrial use. “However
complicated the operations of a machine may look,” he said “it soon
becomes monotonous to factory worker”. He wanted to improve the working
environment and raise the spirits of his dedicated employees. He did
this by building year by year what in time became a world-class
collection of large, colourful contemporary works specifically chosen to
be shown in the factories above the machinery and so provide
inspiration and stimulation.
Throughout the last 50 years the
collection has expanded and gained worldwide critical acclaim, becoming a
high-quality varied and international collection of art that represents
artists from Europe, the United States, China, Russia, Brazil and South
