Buying, Collecting and Display: Research Partnerships


The Gallery fosters pioneering collaborative research into the history of collecting and display.

Among its achievements is the partnership with the Getty Research Institute, which investigated British art sales, 1780-1800; a conference, organised by the Gallery and Royal Collections, that focussed on Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s patronage of the arts; and the ongoing Collaborative Doctoral Awards investigating diverse aspects of the Gallery’s history.
