About the scheme

The Picture Library is an art lending scheme open to residents and businesses of Yorkshire. Based at Leeds Art Gallery we have hundreds of original works of art to choose from and borrow. Whether you’re into landscapes or abstracts, historic or contemporary art, crazy about Matisse or passionate about Moore, there is a work of art for everyone to enjoy at home.

Choosing artworks

Choosing and exchanging works of art couldn’t be easier. We host special selection events four times a year where works of art from our collection are displayed ready for selection. You can select your favourite work and take it away that same day.

Help support the arts

The Picture Library makes art part of everyday life. More than 500 works of art from our collection are currently in homes, offices and community centres across Yorkshire. In recent years we have collaborated with many organisations working with artists, poets, medics and teachers to foster an active interest in the visual arts, to improve wellbeing in hospitals and to inspire learning in classrooms across Leeds.

We are generously supported by Arts Council England who help cover some of our costs. The rest comes from people like you. Your membership fees and donations help fund our ongoing program supporting young and emerging artists.

Join The Picture Library and show your support for the arts.
