Paul Mellon Collection of Paintings
Notice: This sequence is in the process of being digitised and catalogued. Access to the uncatalogued digital images can be provided to researchers in the Public Study Room.
This is a group of photographs of the painting collection formed by Paul Mellon. These paintings are now divided between the collections of the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Richmond and the Paul Mellon private collection. Please note, we do not hold a photograph of every item in the Paul Mellon collection.
The photographs are exclusively black and white and remain un-mounted. The degree of information on the back varies from the artist’s name and Paul Mellon accession number to more detailed information on title, dimensions, medium and provenance. The photographs are filed in their artists files and are in A-Z order
Photographs were acquired from the Paul Mellon collection and The Yale Center for British Art when new acquisitions were made. Images are no longer added to the collection.
