Asylum Art on Loan from Special Collections / LHSA

Posted on September 9, 2013 | in Collections, CRC, Featured | by

These art works, from our Laycock Collection, were created by William Bartholomew at the Crichton Royal Hospital in the 1830s.  They are some of the earliest examples of art created within an asylum.  They have just gone on exhibition loan to the Djanogly Art Gallery at the University of Nottingham:
