The Public Catalogue Foundation - Oil Paintings in Public Ownership - Camden II
Publisher: Public Catalogue Foundation. 2013. Hardback. 312 pp. The PCF has digitised the UK's national collection of oil paintings. Its mission is to make art in public collections more accessible.
Selling at a special reduced price of £25 from £35, in this second volume of paintings from the London Borough of Camden the true depth and breadth of Camdenís artistic heritage is brought to light. Work of 20th-century Jewish ťmigrť artists, such as David Bomberg, Mark Gertler and Jacob Kramer, is revealed in the Ben Uriís impressive collection while The Iveagh Bequest at Kenwood astounds with its collection of masterpieces by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, Reynolds and Gainsborough. The Foundling Museumís splendid Hogarths sit alongside the works of other Museum Mile members such as the Library and Museum of Freemasonry and the Charles Dickens Museum. The great institutions of the British Museum and British Library, not primarily known for their paintings, are represented here, along with many of the royal colleges, educational, medical and professional bodies that crowd this fascinating London borough.
