Welcome

Welcome to The Priseman Seabrook Collections which were established by British artist Robert Priseman and Ally Seabrook in 2014. The collections are formed into three categories – 21st Century British Painting, 20th and 21st Century British Works on Paper and Contemporary Chinese Works on Paper.

The focus of each collection is on painting and drawing made by hand.

Each collection seeks to explore, promote and question the relevance of painting and the hand-made work of art in the digital age through loans, exhibitions, talks, publications and a painting prize. They have grown through direct working and personal relationships with many of the artists represented and been enabled by painting swaps, donations and occasional purchases.

We especially welcome loan requests from schools, not-for-profit galleries and council run art museums.
