The touring ‘ARTIST ROOMS’ exhibition devoted to Hirst, previously shown at the National Galleries of Scotland, included five important Hirst pieces from the d’Offay collection, as well as loans from the artist. Important early works, ‘With Dead Head’ (1991) and the ‘Natural History’ piece ‘Away from the Flock’ (1994), were exhibited alongside a monochrome butterfly diptych created specifically for the collection: ‘Monument to the Living and the Dead’ (2006).
