The UCL Picture Club was founded in 1960 by 15 academics and now owns 153 works of art, ranging from etchings, screen prints, linocuts, bold abstracts in oils to delicate watercolour landscapes. The Club holds meetings once a term in which art is loaned out to members who can socialise over a glass or two of free wine while choosing their favourites. Pictures are then returned the following term for the next draw.
