Images of Industry
About this catalogue
The Department of Industry was established in 1959 to collect and record in the fields of industry, maritime trade and transport. This was prompted by the massive changes to all aspects of Welsh industry in the post Second World War years. This catalogue includes all the paintings, drawings, watercolours, prints, sculptures and applied art in the collection of the Department of Industry of Amgueddfa Cymru — National Museum Wales, which includes the National Waterfront Museum, Big Pit: National Coal Museum, and the National Slate Museum. We have also added selections from other parts of our collection such as badges and checks. Some entries don’t yet have images due to record photography being needed, or copyright not yet being cleared. However, we hope that the lack of images for some entries does not detract from the site.
All images on this catalogue are copyright of Amgueddfa Cymru — National Museum Wales. We have sought to identify copyright holders and obtain reproduction permission in all relevant cases; if we have inadvertently reproduced anything without permission or misattributed copyright, please contact us. Additional images will be added as these become available. For further information about works in the collection please contact Mark Etheridge. For further information about image licensing, please contact Kay Kays.
Images of Industry is updated regularly, but please confirm that a painting remains on display before making a special visit. We would appreciate feedback about Images of Industry, and any new information about works in the collection. Please note that the Art Department also holds a collection relating to industrial Wales. Some of these can be viewed via Art Collections Online.
