Marc Chagall, 'Hagar & Ishmael in the Desert' (UA2012.263)

More than 30 European works were given to the Art Collection by Sir Charles Nicholson, first Chancellor of the University in 1865. It represents artists of significance in the traditions of western European art such as Flemish artist Michiel Coxcie and Swiss born painter Angelica Kauffman.

Since then, individual donors have continued to give art works by Eugène Boudin, Giovanni Piranesi, Francisco Goya, Georges Roualt, Joan Miro and Marc Chagall.
