Exceptional amongst regional galleries for the range, quality and appeal of its paintings, York City Art Gallery offers an expansive collection of British and European art over the last 600 years. Since 1879 the collection has attracted the support of scholars, private collectors and local benefactors including a substantial donation from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2005. The result is a contemporary, modern day look at this diverse collection. Displayed in new themed areas under the headings of people, places, stories, devotion and morality the gallery also offers regular exhibitions and events.
