Oil Paintings in Staffordshire
(Approx $44.80 or €33.60)
This Staffordshire volume shows over 2,500 oil paintings from 34 publicly-owned collections in the county including those in the metropolitan boroughs of Wolverhampton, Walsall and Sandwell. Showing paintings both on display and in store, and ranging from Old Masters to Pop Art, this comprehensive catalogue offers a valuable insight into the artistic heritage and history of the county. Major collections such as those at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent, and The New Art Gallery in Walsall are featured alongside collections owned by a wide range of smaller museums, Keele University and local authorities.
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.
