Works of art from the Collection are displayed in British Government buildings both in the United Kingdom and around the world, playing a significant role in promoting British art and culture across diverse and international environments. Over 14,000 works – over two-thirds of the Collection – are now listed on our website. Whenever possible, we lend works of art to public exhibitions, both in the UK and abroad.
