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.

Paul Mellon Centre Publications

We hold all publications produced since 1970 by the Paul Mellon Centre, as well as those produced in the 1960s by the Centre’s predecessor, the Paul Mellon Foundation.

Copies of all titles financially supported by the Centre’s Grants & Fellowships schemes have also been donated to the Centre.

These materials have all been catalogued on our library and photographic archive catalogue.
