A Bequest for Barnsley

Enjoy a wonderful collection of oil paintings recently bequeathed to Barnsley Museums through the Art Fund. These artworks were collected by a local family and the group includes ‘St Peter’ by Lanfranco, ‘An Introduction into Doubtful Company’ by Robert Hillingford and three excellent still lifes by Barnsley artist Abel Hold. We are delighted to have received this generous gift, and to be able to show the paintings publicly for the very first time.
