Collections

The Yale Center for British Art holds the largest and most comprehensive collection of British art outside the United Kingdom, presenting the development of British art and culture from the Elizabethan period to the present day. Together with the Reference Library, the Center’s collections of paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, rare books, and manuscripts provide an exceptional resource for understanding the story of British art.

The Collections Division also oversees the Collections Information and Access department, Conservation, Imaging Services, Installation, Institutional Archives, and the Office of the Registrar, ensuring that all of the Center’s holdings are well cared for, recorded, and accessible.
