The National Gallery Catalogues

Scholarly research into our collection, and bringing the results of that research to a wider public, lie at the heart of the National Gallery’s role.

The Gallery is undertaking a new cataloguing programme in which curators, scientists and conservators systematically re-examine every painting, using the latest scientific methods. This research is being published in book form in a series of collection catalogues generously supported by the Arthur and Holly Magill Foundation.

The Gallery is now also making selected entries from new catalogues available online, in advance of publication and free of charge.
