Arts Council Collection Online

hepworth-artscouncil.jpgTo celebrate its 60th birthday, the Arts Council collection of post-war British art has been made available for all to enjoy on the Internet.

The collection, formed in 1946 and administered by the Hayward Gallery since 1987, encompasses some 7,500 works by over 2,000 artists.

These include works by some of the biggest names in British art like Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon, Henry Moore and David Hockney

I don’t like the website much though, too fancy for its own good. Keep it simple.
