The Essex County Council and Essex Record Office art collections
Alongside its archival holdings, Essex Record Office looks after a significant collection of art.
The collection is especially strong in classical portraiture but also contains examples of the modern art movement of the 1950s and 1960s, many with a strong Essex connection, archaeological reconstruction paintings, Dutch genre paintings and Essex landscapes. The dates of execution of the collection are 1570-date.
Several paintings are displayed in public areas of the ERO building, and digital images of many others are available, both on Art UK and on our Flickr pages.
Our collection is guided by our Art Policy. If you are interested in using any of the paintings in your research, for educational purposes, or just would like to see them for your own interest and enjoyment please get in touch with us.
