Christ Church Picture Gallery

Oxford Centre

Christ Church is unique among the Oxford and Cambridge colleges in possessing an important collection of Old Master paintings and drawings, housed in a purpose-built Gallery of considerable architectural interest in itself.

The collection is strongest in Italian art, from the 14th to the 18th century. There are also some remarkable works by northern painters such as Anthony van Dyck, Frans Hals and Hugo van der Goes.

The collection is regarded as one of the most important private collections of Old Master drawings in the country and includes work by the masters; Leonardo, Michelangelo, Dürer, Raphael and Rubens. Small in-house exhibitions are changed about every 3 months to enable the public to see a varied selection from this part of the collection.
