British Council Collection
The British Council Collection
Since 1938 the British Council has been collecting works of art, craft and design to promote abroad the achievements of the very best British artists, craft practitioners and designers. The Collection has no permanent gallery and has been referred to as a 'Museum Without Walls'. On these pages you can browse our collection, explore its history and find out more about borrowing and viewing our works.
