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.

Andrew Moore

Approximately fifty books. This material has been fully catalogued on the Library and Photographic Archive catalogue.

The collection consists of publications relating to art and photography in Norwich and Norfolk, including exhibition catalogues from Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery dating from throughout the twentieth century. The collection was selected with the aim of providing an accessible resource centred on the Norwich Museum collections, in the knowledge that many regional art history publications are of a rare and ephemeral nature.

The collection was donated to the Paul Mellon Centre by Andrew Moore in 2020.
