Art Exhibition Books & Catalogues
The National Gallery publishes a wide range of affordable catalogues for our exhibitions, beautifully designed and written by experts on art from the medieval to the modern. See our current offer.
Each year, our exhibitions help to introduce more and more people to incredible art from different time periods and cultures. As an accompaniment to the exhibitions we host, we at the National Gallery also produce exhibition catalogues. These catalogues play a dual role for any owner, providing context and information about the exhibition when it is being experienced, but also becoming a keepsake from an exhibition. With a National Gallery catalogue on your shelf, it is possible to dive back into the art you engaged with and experience it all over again.
The selection of art exhibition catalogues available from our shop includes exhibitions covering different artists and artistic movements. Popular choices include our After Impressionism: Inventing Modern Art Catalogue, which centres on this important transition between artistic periods, and An American Experiment: George Bellows and the Ashcan Painters, which explores urban art and focuses on the work of artists from New York in the early 20th century. There are plenty of art exhibition books focusing on specific artists available too. These include artists books dedicated to contemporary artists such as Paula Rego, Nalini Malani and Lucian Freud.
Be sure to take a look through the full range of art exhibition catalogues available at the National Gallery Shop and find a brilliant read.
