The Whitworth is a university gallery and as such is a place of research and study, and our recent development has created both new study facilities and increased access to the 55,000 historic and contemporary works in our collection.

Find out how you can work with us, or read about our current research projects.


The Whitworth has partnered with Bridgeman to manage the reproduction of our images.
High resolution images from our permanent collection can be requested for any scholarly, editorial, and commercial usage through them directly. You can browse and search via the Bridgeman Images website.
