Yale Center for British Art
Presented to Yale University by Paul Mellon (Yale College Class of 1929), the collection of paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, rare books, and manuscripts reflects the development of British art and life from the Elizabethan period to the present day. Works on view include masterpieces by Thomas Gainsborough, J.M.W. Turner, and John Constable, as well as artists from Europe and America who lived and worked in Britain.
The Center offers a year-round schedule of exhibitions and programs. Resources include a reference library and study room for examining works on paper. Opened to the public in 1977, the Center is the final building designed by Louis I. Kahn. Located in downtown New Haven, the Center is near many of the city’s best restaurants, theaters, and shops.
