Overview


The Holmes à Court Collection, started in the early 1960s, grew from the family’s interest in Australian and Indigenous art. It has steadily developed over time into an internationally renowned collection that documents many areas of Australian cultural significance. This background has provided the focus for what is an eclectic and very personal collection. A core philosophy has been to look at artists and their works in terms of the connections and relationships that can be formed when developing exhibitions, rather than a chronological or historical recording of Australian art history.


Today the Collection, what is now the Janet Holmes à Court Collection, consists of more than 5,000 registered artworks and continues to be an important collection of Australian and Western Australian art, with a strong emphasis on Indigenous works. We share the Collection with the public through our own exhibitions and loans of works to other public institutions for exhibition and publication. The Collection is also made available where possible for curatorial research.

Janet Holmes à Court is sole owner of the Janet Holmes à Court Collection.
