Oil Paintings in The City of London
(Approx $44.80 or €33.60)
From the large collections owned by the City of London Corporation and the Museum of London to smaller holdings at St Bartholomew's Hospital, the Bank of England and Dr Johnson's House, this volume uncovers a wealth of artistic talent. Paintings ranging from sixteenth-century Holbeins to pre-Raphaelite masterpieces and contemporary abstracts are revealed. The City of London, despite its small size geographically, can lay claim to some of the United Kingdom's finest paintings.
The Public Catalogue Foundation is a charity passionate about making art accessible to the public and educational research. Between 2003 and 2012, they digitised all 210,000 oil paintings in public ownership around the United Kingdom (80% of which are not on view), resulting in this series of affordable catalogues and an online database. They are currently working to digitise the nation’s public sculpture collection.
