Art Collection

The Art Collection contains works by leading modern and contemporary British artists including Helen Chadwick, Albert Irvin, Richard Long and Anish Kapoor. It also has a number of historic works. The collection is particularly strong in contemporary prints but also includes works on canvas and sculpture. We continue to acquire work by established modern and contemporary artists, predominantly British.

The Collection is displayed across the hospital and loaned to other institutions. The art collection plays an important facet in transforming the clinical spaces to enhance the wellbeing of patients and staff.

We regularly ask patients, visitors, staff and artists to choose their favourite art work from the collection.

I really love seeing the art work around the hospital. My favourite is the work by Albert Irvin, they are a joy to look at and takes my mind off my treatmentPatient
