Paintings and Sculpture

The Department of Paintings and Sculpture is responsible for a collection of approximately 2,000 paintings and 250 sculptures. Particularly strong in the period from 1700–1850, the collection ranges from a medieval Nottingham alabaster to works by contemporary artists. Thanks to the special interests of founder Paul Mellon, the Center also has one of the greatest collections of British sporting and animal paintings in the world.
