Hampshire County Council Contemporary Art Collection

This collection is now available to view online for the very first time via the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS).

The collection of nearly 400 pieces includes the work of significant British artists, such as limited edition prints by Bridget Riley, Henry Moore, and John Piper, through to more recent additions from Hampshire-based artists or works depicting Hampshire scenes, including a set of works bequeathed to the council by artist Nick Schlee.

This collection adds to the 120,000 plus digitised images already available online through the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS). VADS is a research centre based at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) and provides online access to hundreds of art and design image collections from universities, colleges, libraries, museums and archives across the UK, for free use in non-commercial education and research.
