The Vestey Gallery of British Sporting Art
The Vestey Gallery of British Sporting Art allows us to showcase the best of British sporting paintings, prints and sculpture. There is an annual exhibition taken from the collections of the Trust and in some years from Tate Britain.
Situated within the National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket, the gallery was funded by the generous support of our late patron Edmund Vestey.
Loans of sporting paintings from Tate Britain complemented by the Trust's own collection, fulfil the wishes of donors that sporting art presented to the Trust or the Tate is on exhibition rather than in storage. The Tate collection is based on gifts from Paul Mellon and a bequest from Mrs F. Ambrose Clark.
