Christ Church Picture Gallery

Christ Church Picture Gallery

Christ Church is unique among the Oxford and Cambridge colleges in possessing an important collection of Old Master paintings and drawings – some 300 paintings and almost 2000 drawings.

The collection is strong in Italian art, from the 14th to the 18th century: there are paintings by early, often anonymous masters, and works by Fillippino Lippi, Tintoretto, Veronese and Annibale Carracci, to name but a few, as well as works by notable northern painters such as Van Dyck, Frans Hals and Hugo van der Goes.

The Picture Gallery at Christ Church represents one of the most important private collections of drawings in the country, including works by renowned masters such as Leonardo, Michelangelo, Durer, Raphael and Rubens. However, for reasons of conservation these works cannot be on permanent display.
