The Permanent Collection at The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
Housing the National Gallery of Scotland's modern collection, this gallery lies on the outskirts of Edinburgh in open, leafy grounds that are perfect for displaying its impressive collection of sculpture, featuring Barbara Hepworth, Anthony Caro and Henry Moore amongst others.
The Permanent Collection at National Museum of American Art
The origins of the collection of The National Museum of American Art had humble beginnings. In 1829 John Varden, a private art collector decided to show his collection of works to the public from a room in his own house. And for the first seventy or so years of this collection's life it moved through several locations before settling and growing in the Patent Office Building in Washington, which in the 1960s became its permanent home.
The Permanent Collection at Compton Verney House
Compton Verney House in Warwickshire, one of this country’s architectural masterpieces, will open on 27 March 2004 after extensive restoration which has seen the previously derelict mansion transformed into a major new art venue. It is the realisation of a life-long aim held by British philanthropist Sir Peter Moores, to share with others the pleasure that the arts give him and to provide this opportunity in a welcoming environment.
The Permanent Collection at Dali Universe
London’s most surreal experience lies in a labyrinth of atmospheric corridors and dreamlike effects in the heart of the thriving South Bank. The Dalí Universe enjoys a unique location for a dramatically unique collection. Over 500 incredible pieces by genius and eccentric Salvador Dalí are on permanent exhibit at County Hall Gallery.
The Permanent Collection at Indianapolis Museum of Art
The Indianapolis Museum of Art has amassed a wealth of art from every part of the world. The collection is richly varied, ranging from Renaissance and Flemish art, through to African and Asian cultural artefacts and late 20th century sculpture.
Permanent Collection at Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is celebrating the Tenth Anniversary of its opening in 2007. The project launched more than 15 years ago as part of an ambitious Plan of Urban Regeneration, in which the Basque institutions and citizens placed great expectation, has come to maturity and experienced consolidation, not only as an element promoting transformation of the Basque Country from the cultural, urban and architectural points of view, but also as an artistic reference on an international scale.
Gallery Collection at Tate Modern
The Tate Modern permanent collection of modern art is the largest in Britain and is recognised as one of the finest and most important in the world. Housed in a vast ex power station, the building itself is enough to inspire awe, but the collection and exhibition schedule require a breathtaking setting. There are many internationally important artists on display as well as representation for lesser known and new artists.
