Shell Heritage Art Collection

The Shell Heritage Art Collection is one of the most important collections of 20th Century British commercial art.

Featuring the work of well-known modern British artists the collection contains posters, press advertisements, paintings and illustrations, as well as early postcards, books and a unique collection of Valentine cards. Previously stored at Shell-Mex House in London, the Shell Heritage Art Collection has been housed at Beaulieu since May 1993.
