You can now access the Gallery collection for online research with more than 10,000 works included in our searchable catalogue. This includes accessioned items across all departments, as well as works where provenance is still to be confirmed.
The collection has depth across a wide range of media types, including over 1,000 paintings and more than 7,000 works on paper: prints, drawings and watercolours. There are also medieval manuscripts, artist’s books, costumes, religious icons, ceramics and archival material.
Since 2010, the Gallery has been working on a documentation audit to ensure that data about all our acquisitions since 1884 is correct. Most of the new information will be seen in the credit lines.
Enjoy the collection.
