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.

Yale Center for British Art Publications

The Centre has copies of all exhibition and collection catalogues, as well as exhibition guides, produced by the Yale Center for British Art, the Centre’s sister organization in New Haven, Connecticut. Catalogues of exhibitions held at the Center but produced by other institutions are also collected.

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