Oil Paintings in Public Ownership in Camden: Vol II

In this second volume of paintings from the London Borough of Camden the true depth and breadth of Camden's artistic heritage is brought to light. The Iveagh Bequest at Kenwood astounds with its collection of masterpieces by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, Reynolds and Gainsborough, while the work of 20th-century Jewish émigré artists, such as David Bomberg, Mark Gertler and Jacob Kramer, is revealed in the Ben Uri's impressive collection. The Foundling Museum's splendid Hogarths sit alongside the works of other Museum Mile members such as the Library and Museum of Freemasonry and the Charles Dickens Museum. The great institutions of the British Museum and British Library, not primarily known for their paintings, are represented here, along with many of the royal colleges, educational, medical and professional bodies that crowd this fascinating London borough.
