At Guildford Heritage Services we have over 500 works of art, spanning over 250 years. The collection includes oil paintings, watercolours, pastels and prints as well as three-dimensional items, such as pottery and sculptures. The art works include various views of Guildford and the surrounding area.
We have a nationally important collection of work by John Russell (1745 - 1806) who was a member of the Royal Academy. He was a pastel painter to King George III and his son, who was to become George IV. In recent years, we have also built up our collection of works by contemporary artists.
