Christchurch College’s Picture Gallery
In 1765 former student of Christchurch College, John Guise, donated his vast collection of Renaissance paintings and drawings to his alta mater.
The collection provided an innovative opportunity for students and fellows not wealthy enough to do the ‘Italian tour’, nor well enough ‘connected’ to gain entrance to stately homes, to admire a collection of work by Renaissance masters.
