Swindon's remarkable art collection now has a reputation as one of the best of British 20th Century Art outside London. Housed in the Swindon Art Gallery, it was established by local benefactor, H J P Bomford, during 1944 from a generous donation of works that include many of the major British artists of the day such as Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland, L S Lowry and Paul Nash.
Other artists in the collection include: Terry Frost, Howard Hodgkin, Gwen and Augustus John, Maggi Hambling, Ivon Hitchens, Christopher Le Brun, and Lisa Milroy. There is also a significant collection of studio pottery, with works by David Leach, Lucie Rie and Hans Coper among others.
There is a dedicated parking bay and ramp access to the ground floor of the museum. The Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is spread over several floors so please contact museum staff for full access details.
