Library Collections

The library collections cover British painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, decorative arts, architecture and garden history from the medieval period to the present day. The collections on British artists and architects, the British and Irish country house and the eighteenth-century Grand Tour are particularly strong.

The Centre has been the fortunate recipient of many generous donations over the years. Some donations are single titles, some run to hundreds of titles. Above are some of the larger donations we have received.
