The Nation’s Paintings

Manx National Heritage has worked closely with ArtUK in recent years, encouraging greater public access to the National Art Collection.

At the Manx Museum we care for a rich and varied collection of art, but we don’t have the space to display the collection in its entirety – only a small percentage of our art is displayed at any given time. With this in mind, we were delighted when  ArtUK asked to photograph and catalogue each and every one of our oil paintings, as part of their major project to capture art collections around Britain. Thanks to ArtUK, Manx National Heritage’s full collection of oil paintings is now online

What’s more, you can get involved by helping to tag the nation’s art collection on ArtUK; choosing your own words to describe what can be seen in a selection of paintings and helping to classify them. This will make it much easier to search the National Art Collection online.

The National Art Collection is available to view on iMuseum, along with other artworks from the Manx National Heritage collections. If you take a liking to one of our paintings, there’s also the option to buy a print online for your very own personal art gallery at home.
