We are pleased to announce that the Department of Coins and Medals of the British Museum have added Art Notes to their collection, which will very soon be available to view through the online catalogue, visible to anyone who searches for it on the British Museum website.
Here is what the Curator of Modern Money on behalf of the British Museum had to say:
“The Department of Coins and Medals strives to collect objects and ephemera which relate to all aspects of monetary exchange, and the notes produced by the London Printworks Trust neatly reflect the link between art and finance. In this interpretation they are historically reminiscent of the George Cruikshank engraved notes and Bank Restriction skit notes of the early 1800s. Like these earlier notes, the notes produced by London Printworks are not only artistically interesting, but they strike a resonant chord in a time of financial uncertainty, and we are pleased to be able to include them in our own collection.”
