This volume includes over 2,400 paintings from publicly owned collections throughout the City of Sheffield. The magnificent collection of Museums Sheffield spreads across four locations and encompasses paintings ranging from seventeenth-century Baroque Spanish art with examples by Murillo and Ribera to paintings by Cézanne, Gauguin and Renoir. In addition, universities, hospitals, councils, courts, libraries, archives, and the county fire and rescue service all reveal their paintings in this unique volume. World famous painters feature alongside local artists who often take their inspiration from Sheffield's famous steelworks. The collections also reflect the generosity of wealthy benefactors, from industrialists to academics, who have left the City with such a rich array of artworks.
