The Public Catalogue Foundation, recently renamed Art UK, was set up to catalogue every oil painting in public ownership in the UK. This unique and ambitious project involved visiting 3,000 collections across the country and photographing over 212,000 paintings. The lecture offers an insider's view of the project and describes how and why it was set up, some unusual collections visited, intriguing paintings uncovered, detective work involved and help given by the public.

Lecturer: Mary Rose Rivett-Carnac

Presented by Richmond Art Society
