The Hyman Collection
The Hyman Collection consists of artworks in all media.
The Hyman Collection began in 1996 and includes Anya Gallaccio’s most famous work, Red on Green, a floor of ten thousand fragrant English tea roses; Zhang Huan’s celebrated figures made from the ash of incense sticks burned in Buddhist Temples; and the original life-size puppets of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her government ministers from the famous TV series Spitting Image.
Over the last ten years The Hyman Collection has focused on photography, from its earliest days to the present, with a particular emphasis on early French photography.
In 2015 The Hyman Collection launched britishphotography.org to provide online access to British photographs in the collection and to use this part of the collection as an educational resource to increase international awareness of British photography.
