Our collection of paintings is largely nineteenth and twentieth century in date although a few earlier examples may be found such as the portrait of Sir William Stone, Master 1606-1607 [English school], purchased in 1984. 
Portrait of the First Fourteen Liverywomen by June Mendoza
Many of these works were commissioned by the Company as testimonial portraits or to commemorate an historical occasion, such as June Mendoza’s portrait of the first Fourteen Liverywomen elected by the Company in 1994 and 1995.

We also preserve and display a small number of paintings, prints and drawings of Clothworker interest such as historic images of Clothworkers’ Hall and its predecessors and watercolours of the Company’s properties.

A catalogue of the Company’s portraits by David Wickham [1997] is available to purchase on the Ordering Publications page.
