The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly catalogue reveals 1556 publicly owned oil paintings from 54 collections across the county and archipelago off Land's End. The largest single collection is the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro with just over 400 paintings. Other significant holdings are found at Penlee House Gallery and Museum in Penzance and Falmouth Art Gallery. The smaller collections include volunteer-run museums, hospitals, libraries, town councils and a fire station. Brought together in one volume, these paintings constitute an important visual record of the counties' history and topography as well as the artists who lived and worked there.
