About Christ Church Picture Gallery

Christ Church Picture Gallery is an art museum at Christ Church, one of the colleges of Oxford University. It holds an internationally renowned collection of Old Master paintings and drawings, housed in a purpose-built Gallery of considerable architectural interest in itself. The important private collection of 300 paintings and almost 2000 drawings includes work by Leonardo, Michelangelo, Dürer, Raphael and Rubens.

Christ Church Picture Gallery is located within the walls of Christ Church. To visit the Picture Gallery without visiting the rest of the college, enter through Canterbury Gate off Oriel Square (from King Edward Street), only a couple of minutes walk from the High Street. The Custodian at the gate will direct you to the Gallery.
