Picture Loan Scheme
The Picture Loan Scheme offers students, undergraduate and graduate, the chance to borrow original artworks for the academic year. Set up by former Master, Professor Alan Munro, during the 1990s, the collection comprises some 200 pictures in a wide range of styles and media. Its central criteria are that each work be striking and original (i.e. no reproductions).
An exhibition is held in the second week of Michaelmas term, and all students are invited to come and choose one or two pictures for the year. At the end of the Easter term, these are returned to the Porters’ Lodge.
New artworks are added most years. Parts of the current collection can be browsed below. It is administered by Music Fellow, Dr David Trippett.
