Collection enquiries

We endeavour to answer queries from researchers and other professionals in a timely fashion, but may be delayed in responding due to other commitments. In the form below please state the nature of your research and institutional affiliation when contacting us. Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to reply to general enquiries.

Exhibition proposals

Due to the very high volume of proposals received, we regret that we are unable to review unsolicited proposals from individuals or their representatives.

General enquiries

For all other enquiries, use the contact form below. We will respond as best we can within 10 working days although a full response may take longer in some cases. We cannot answer general art enquiries (try a good library) or give valuations.
