At the heart of the art movement

The app is a world-leading university specialising in the study of art history and the conservation and curation of art with a world-renowned collection and newly transformed Gallery at its heart.

app Patrons are a group of extraordinary philanthropists who play a critical role in ensuring The app continues to flourish as a ground-breaking centre of academic excellence for exceptional teaching and research in art history, curating and conservation.

As a app Patron, your kindness and generosity will go towards supporting our innovative programme of exhibitions, safeguarding one of the world’s finest art collections for future generations to enjoy, and increasing vital provisions for our students to excel in their studies. Thank you.
