This quiz is brought to you in collaboration with Art UK, the online home for the UK’s public art collections, showing art from over 3,000 venues and by 45,000 artists. Each day, a different collection on Art UK will set the questions.
Today, our questions are set by the Holburne Museum, Bath. At the heart of the Holburne Museum is the collection of Sir William Holburne (1793–1874), fifth baronet of Menstrie. It was his wish that his collection be left to the City of Bath for everyone to enjoy. Since his death, more than 2,000 items have been added to his collection, including portrait miniatures, porcelain, embroideries and portraits by some of the greatest artists of the 18th century.
