When & Where
UCL Art Museum
Over 10,000 works of art make up the collections of UCL Art Museum, from the 1500s to the present day.
Works separated by centuries are linked by a desire to experiment with new materials, theories, and reproduction techniques in order to produce new meanings, share ideas and inspire.
Since the museum has its origins as a teaching and research collection tied to the history of the Slade School of Fine Arts, the collections present a unique archive of art education. Alongside outstanding examples of works by old masters such as Dürer, Rembrandt, Van Dyck and Turner, the Museum holds examples of early works by pioneering artists of the 20th century such as Gwen John, Dora Carrington, Winifred Knights, Stanley Spencer, Augustus John, Ithel Colquhoun, Diana Cumming, Euan Uglo, Paula Rego, Anna Maria Pacheco all former Slade Students, as well as works by Slade Professors such as Henry Tonks and William Coldstream.
