The Collection

Here you can view highlights from the Barber Institute's collection of paintings.

The Barber Institute contains one of the finest small collections of European art in the UK. The works have been purchased to fit Lady Barber’s criteria that everything should be of ‘that standard of quality required by the National Gallery or Wallace Collection’. Careful consideration has also been given to making sure that the works provide a comprehensive coverage of the great national schools and the different genres and styles. The outcome is a collection which includes prime examples of the work of many of the greatest artists including Botticelli, Giovanni Bellini, Veronese, Rubens, Van Dyck, Poussin, Claude, Gainsborough, Turner, Ingres, Manet, Monet, Degas, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Magritte.
