This quiz is brought to you in collaboration with Art UK, the online home for the UK’s public art collections, showing art from more than 3,000 venues and by 45,000 artists. Each day, a different collection on Art UK will set the questions.
Today, our questions are set by Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery. The museum houses a rich and fascinating collection of paintings, Japanese prints, Christian icons, medieval manuscripts, natural history specimens, Egyptian artefacts, coins and the local and social history of its home town. In addition to existing collections, generous bequests from Thomas Boys Lewis and Robert Edward Hart have helped to create a diverse and renowned collection.
