Cooper Gallery – The Collection


A brand new catalogue detailing the history of generous art collectors who gave their paintings and drawings to the Cooper Gallery, together with stunning examples of their collections, is now available to buy for the first time.

The publication showcases even more of the world class fine art that can be found in Barnsley. It was created as part of The Heritage Lottery funded project, which has seen the gallery double its public exhibition space.

The catalogue contains a foreword by Paul Elmhirst, Chair of the Trustees of the Cooper Gallery, and fascinating information about Mr and Mrs Cooper, the Fox family, Sir Michael Sadler, Captain Addy and Malcolm Whittaker. All of whom have kindly donated their art collections to the Gallery so they can be freely accessible to all.

Some of the treasures that people can find out more about are works by Edward Wadsworth, JMW Turner, Prunella Clough, Charles Theodore Frere, Vanessa Bell, Diaz de la Pena, John Ruskin and many, many more.
