The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art have launched an outstanding new online platform called Art & The Country House. The site offers films, essays, documents and catalogues relating to the themes of British country house art collections. This includes several important private collections, which is always very exciting to delve into.

The volume and scope of the material offered is staggering and I really can't wait to get entirely lost in the various articles and catalogues of paintings.

Just imagine if the majority of the big collections signed up to a platform like this? A rather utopian dream perhaps, but a beautiful one nonetheless.
