Located on Chapel Street on the campus of Yale University, the Yale Center for British Art contains the largest collection of works of British art outside of the United Kingdom. The center was established in 1966 when Paul Mellon, a 1929 Yale University graduate, gifted his British art collection to the university.
The building opened to the public in 1977 and contains thousands of drawings, manuscripts, paintings, prints, rare books, and sculptures from the Elizabethan period to the 19th century. The collection includes paintings by Constable, Gainsborough, and many more. Non-English artists include Canaletto, Holbein, and Rubens. The center offers many educational programs, exhibitions, and special events to the public.
