Board minutes (1828–1918)

As part of the Gallery’s ongoing commitment to provide access to our collections, the Research Centre has digitised eight volumes of the minutes of the Board of
Trustees and the corresponding indexes.

The minutes cover all major areas of the Gallery’s administration, including the acquisition of pictures, development of the collection, buildings, staff, conservation, constitution and relations with the government. The minutes also include some notes of letters read at meetings.

A full catalogue record for the minutes of the Board of Trustees can be viewed here.
