The Towneley Hall art gallery contains one of the best collections of historic art in Lancashire and beyond.
Today there are over 300 oil paintings in the collection, the acquisitions being evenly divided between gifts and purchases, plus around 20 paintings transferred from Burnley Central Library and Padiham Museum in the 1970s.
The collection also includes oil and watercolour masterpieces by Alma-Tadema, Burne-Jones and Waterhouse.
About half of the oil paintings are on public display in most of the rooms around the house.
Our full collection of oil paintings is also available online. You can view all the paintings in our collection on the Art UK website.
Here are some of the highlights of the collection.
