Oil Paintings in Greater Manchester vol.I
(Approx $44.80 or €33.60)
Greater Manchester Volume I contains over 3,000 oil paintings from 26 public collections in Central Manchester. The largest collection is that of Manchester City Galleries, with over 2,000 oil paintings, best known for its important, representative collection of work by nineteenth-century British artists, particularly the Pre-Raphaelites. This volume is the first of our three catalogues covering the Greater Manchester area.
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.
