The Collections

The collections take visitors on a journey through 700 years of art and art history. Art ranging from the early Renaissance to the cutting-edge contemporary can be viewed in new displays at the Gallery.

 

The new displays offer a chronological overview, themed areas for in-depth contemplation, and angles of approach that put forward new perspectives and make the works on display immediately relevant today.
