A phenomenal display of artworks by internationally acclaimed artists. Showcasing sculpture, print, painting and drawing dating from the 1950s to present day, the works represent prominent figures in modern and contemporary art. Each with their own unique style, the artists who featured in the exhibition are distinguishable by their choice of subject matter, colour, line and form.

Works were selected from the Arts Council Collection, which includes nearly 8,000 artworks by 2,000 artists, and were displayed alongside art from the Ealand & Warwick Bequest, managed by Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery. The artworks chosen for the exhibition have been exhibited all over the world but had never previously been seen in Peterborough.

Names in the show familiar to Peterborough included Antony Gormley and David Annesely, both of whom have sculptures in the city.

The Ealand & Warwick Bequest is a personal selection of artworks brought together by Tom Ealand and Richard Warwick. The collection was also exhibited publicly in Friends Through Art at Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery in 2016. The artworks chosen for On Form complemented those from the Arts Council Collection and included notable painters of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
