Gifts to Public Collections


As part of our aim to foster, protect and promote the reputation of work of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, the Trust has donated her artworks valued at over £0.75 million to a wide range of public institutions since 2007.


Ongoing Gift Programme


This ongoing gifting programme includes major gifts of original artworks to Tate, National Galleries of Scotland, Pallant House Gallery, Hepworth Wakefield, Leeds Art Gallery, Pier Arts Centre, Aberdeen Art Gallery and Abbot Hall, Kendal. An illustrated list of gifts of original works can be viewed here.

Over 50 of Barns-Graham’s much admired screenprints have been also given to public galleries, educational institutions and especially healthcare providers, where their bold designs and bright colours have been particularly welcomed.
