How often do you look at paintings and sculpture?
You may research them in books and on the
Internet, but how frequently do you go to a gallery
and see the real thing?
It’s only through getting close to works
of art that
you can truly appreciate them. Only when you
stand in front of a painting, sculpture or beautiful
ceramic will you understand what all the fuss is
about, and why such works sell for hundreds of
thousands of pounds.
Access Art will help you to get close to a particular
body of work: the University of Hull Art Collection.
We hope that you will use this resource to support
a visit to the Collection’s gallery at the University
campus on Cottingham Road.
If you don’t get a chance to visit us during
few months, you’ll still find this website useful in
supporting your studies because it introduces you
to a fascinating period of both art and social
history: Britain 1890 to 1940.
