This Channel Islands volume brings together more than 1,800 paintings from publicly-owned collections across the Islands. Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery and Jersey Heritage have large collections of paintings, many on display, but most in store, which show the remarkable artistic heritage of the Islands and the attraction they have held for artists over the years. Smaller collections reveal more treasures including those in St Helier Town Hall, Victoria College and the National Trust in Jersey, and the Royal Court and Princess Elizabeth Hospital in Guernsey. A good range of Channel Island artists are represented including Ouless, Blampied, Kilpack, Le Capelain, Saint-Hélier Lander, Le Maistre, Arbuthnot, Sands, Cook and Adams. From parish halls to fire stations, the Channel Islands reveals a wealth of paintings that reflect the history of the Islands.
