Arts Council Collections: Oil Paintings in Public Ownership
Library Shelf Location 12.ARTS
Publication Date 2012
Description The Arts Council Collection was formed in 1946 on the altruistic but pragmatic conviction that the best and most appropriate way to support artists in Britain was to buy their work. Sixty years on from its founding, the Collection has continued to acquire work and now includes more than 7,600 works of art. This catalogue shows the 1,400 oil, acrylic and tempera paintings from The Arts Council Collection, highlighting the Arts Council’s sustained support of young and emerging artists and demonstrating the depth of collecting in certain areas, as well as the breadth and heterogeneity of the Collection.
