"Beaverbrook's philanthropy k new no bounds or so it seemed. In the late 1950s, he built the Beaverbrook Art Gallery and stocked it with masterpieces of British and Canadian art that form the core of the Gallery's prestigious collection. Today, the paintings are at the centre of a bitter battle between the Gallery and the two charitable Beaverbrook foundations - a battle that has rocked the art world on both sides of the Atlantic." - from the dj.
