Dedicated to self-portraiture the Ruth Borchard Collection is a unique body of British and Irish visual art. Regularly acquiring new works, the Collection now consists of the Original Collection, the Early Collection and, the Next Generation Collection. Alongside the Collection the Self Portrait Prize is a critically acclaimed contemporary art event. It provides an opportunity for artists from all backgrounds to compete for the £10,000 Ruth Borchard Award and to become part of the Collection.
