The Collection has come about as the result of many generous gifts and loans from artists and donors. With close to 400 contemporary artworks by women artists the New Hall Art Collection is regarded as the most significant of its kind in Europe.

The New Hall Art Collection is found within Murray Edwards College, part of the University of Cambridge.
