Oil Paintings in The Palace of Westminster
(Approx $44.80 or €33.60)
The Parliamentary Art Collection (made up of the House of Commons and House of Lords Works of Art Collections) uniquely illustrates in paintings, sculpture and other types of artwork, the history of Parliament and British politics over the centuries. The Collection includes over 600 oil paintings, reproduced here, the majority dating from the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries. This catalogue represents the third volume of paintings catalogued in the City of Westminster.
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.
