Art Collections

The Peter Scott Gallery houses Lancaster University’s international art collection, which includes Japanese and Chinese art, antiquities, works by twentieth century British artists and prints by significant European artists such as DürerMiróErnst and Vasarely.

The collection is not on permanent display but a number of works are shown every year as part of changing exhibitions. Please contact the Peter Scott Gallery (gallery@liveatlica.org) for information about works currently on display or to view items by appointment.
