Art Collection

The University of Hull Art Collection is a small but outstanding collection specialising in paintings, sculpture, drawings and prints produced in Britain 1890-1940.

It includes works by Beardsley, Sickert, Steer, Lucien Pissarro, Augustus John, Stanley Spencer, Wyndham Lewis and Ben Nicholson as well as sculpture by Epstein, Gill, Gaudier-Brzeska and Henry Moore. The Camden Town Group and Bloomsbury artists are particularly well represented.

The University Art Collection in the Middleton Hall is currently closed in preparation for the eventual move to its new bigger and better home in the refurbished Brynmor Jones Library.

The closure is to allow the photography of all our works and a conservation audit. That will be followed by preparation and wrapping ready for the move, which will take place when the contractors have finished and the new spaces are ready. We expect this to be early in 2015. It will then take some time to arrange the hanging in the new gallery, but it is anticipated that this will open in spring 2015.
