Artist Biographies

The following are links to biographies of a selection of the artists and artworks in the Modern and Contemporary Art Collections, ordered alphabetically by artist surname.

In general, these biographies have been researched and compiled over a period of years by Collections Assistants as well as Undergraduate and Postgraduate interns, as a training exercise.

The project is ongoing and so the webpage will be added to over time, adding works from our Historic Collection, Sculpture and Statuary, and the College Silver.

Please note that clicking on a link will open the document in the same window of your pc or download a text-only pdf document onto your device.
