The South London Gallery collection began with the inception of the gallery in 1891. It has grown over the gallery's lifetime and includes works by Modern British artists, a collection of more than 500 20th-century prints and contemporary works relating to south London. Although the collection is not on permanent display, it is a valuable resource for projects with schools allowing pupils hands on experience of contemporary works of art.
