Bridgeman Art Library

The marketing of Towneley photographic images appears to have been handled by Bridgeman Art Library since around 1983. None of the original documentation can be found at Towneley, but the Art Sub-committee on May 20th 1985 recorded

With reference to Minute No. 34 (February 1983) the Borough Recreation Officer reported on the arrangements which had been entered into with the Bridgeman Arts Library for the making of colour transparencies of paintings in the Towneley Hall collection. He indicated that the scheme was working satisfactorily and producing a small annual income for the Council.

The images available can be viewed on the Bridgeman website
