We are pleased to announce the addition of the records of the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art to Copac.
The library at The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art holds a comprehensive collection of study materials on British painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, architecture and garden history from the 16th to the mid-20th century, as well as 18th-century British decorative arts.
Particular strengths are the collections on the British country house, the 18th-century Grand Tour and the Royal Academy of Arts.
There are a number of information files relating to art in Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries, including print publishers catalogues, newspaper reviews of Royal Academy of Arts exhibitions and regional exhibiting societies catalogues.
The library contains approximately 20,000 books, pamphlets, exhibition catalogues and theses, 8000 auction catalogues and 230 periodical titles. The collection is reference only.
