Art Works

The Library’s collection of artworks includes portraits of luminaries such as philosopher Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), biologist Thomas Huxley (1825-1895), and the freethought writer Chapman Cohen (1868-1954).

We have sculptures of political author Thomas Paine (1737-1809), designer and socialist William Morris (1834-1896), and the freethinker George Jacob Holyoake (1817-1906), amongst others, as well as numerous photographs from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

All of our art works are indexed and searchable via HuLACAT.

The works can also be downloaded as a Portraits List

Whichever way you chose to learn more about our artworks, we hope you enjoy these unique portraits of remarkable men and women.
