News from the island of Jersey that a significant collection of 70 works of art by Philip John Ouless (1817–1885) has been purchased by Jersey Heritage. The collection, which includes oil paintings, watercolours and photographs, was purchased for around £70,000 directly from descendants of the local-born artist.

According to the BBC report linked above:

Senior registrar Helena Kergozou said it was a "very exciting moment for Jersey Heritage".

Ms Kergozou said: "This large collection of Ouless artworks represents an incredible addition to our art collection, which help us to tell the stories of Jersey's most important artists."


Jersey Heritage's collections team will spend time cataloguing and digitising each item, making these works available for research purposes and to view online.
