Pieter Breughel the Younger painting 
The College owns what is believed to be a 16C studio copy of  Pieter Breughel the elder’s Flemish Proverbs, the original being in Berlin. Last autumn  Dr Jon Whiteley of the Ashmolean and  and Ruth Bubb , Conservator,   discussed the painting and conservation needs. It is now being investigated and restored alonside 3 other Breughel works from major collections. We plan to report on the art historical and scientific findings when the picture returns.

We have bought a painting by the very distinguished sculptor and painter Phyllida Barlow RA. An art committee sub-group saw this work at the October Frieze Art fair organised for us by the Contempoary Art Society.
