ART DONATED FROM THE SAATCHI GALLERY

In January 1999, The Saatchi Gallery donated 100 works from the collection to The Arts Council Collection of Great Britain, which was launched in 1946 and operates as a "lending library" to museums and galleries around Britain. The gift is part of The Saatchi Gallery's aim of increasing awareness and promoting interest in younger artists. Included in the gift were works by Richard Billingham, Glenn Brown, Keith Coventry, Peter Davies, Langlands and Bell, Mark Francis, Chantal Joffe and Richard Wilson. Many museums throughout the UK have since mounted exhibitions from the Arts Council gift.

In September 2000, The Saatchi Gallery donated 40 more works by young British artists. The gift to the National Art Collections Fund, included paintings, sculpture, and installations by 22 artists. These works have been distributed through the National Arts Collection Fund to eight major museum collections across Britain. The Art Fund was chosen because of its distinguished 97 year record of presenting gifts and assisting museums throughout the UK with acquisitions.

In January 2002, The Saatchi Gallery donated 50 artworks to Paintings in Hospitals. Paintings in Hospitals, a registered charity, was founded in 1959 and provides a lending library of over 3,000 original works of art to NHS hospitals, hospices and health centres throughout England, Wales and Ireland. There are currently 175 hospitals participating in the loan scheme. The Patron of Paintings in Hospitals is HRH, The Prince of Wales, who recently announced a joint initiative between his foundation and NHS Estates on improving design for new hospitals.

In January 2003, in keeping with The Saatchi Gallery's policy of making gifts from the collection, The Saatchi Gallery donated a further 34 sculptures to the Arts Council Collection.
Included were works by Marc Quinn, Richard Wilson and Gary Webb.

This new gift of sculpture is timely because it will be displayed in the new sculpture facility at Longside in Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield, which opened in Spring 2003.
