Mark Hallett, Director of Studies

We are pleased to announce that the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art is now open to the public. Over the past ten months, the Centre has undergone a dramatic form of expansion and refurbishment. Our premises have doubled in size and been reorganised and redecorated throughout. Amongst other changes, we have integrated our rich Library and Archival holdings across a single floor; designed a new exhibition room in which to house displays of materials from our collections; and increased and updated our events and teaching spaces. These changes are intended to provide all our users with an even more effective and stimulating environment in which to pursue and present their art-historical research.

We very much look forward to welcoming old friends of the Centre back through our doors, and to introducing new visitors to the wide-ranging scholarly resources that are now available to be drawn upon and explored here at Bedford Square.
