We have a collection of 1,826 works of art, the majority of which were bought by the council between 1940 and 2000 and many are now in storage.
Professional art consultants reviewed the collection in 2016. We'd now like to reduce the collection to 167 works that are highly significant to the history of Hertfordshire.
To start with, we're proposing to dispose of 428 works. Later in 2018, we'll develop plans for the remaining 1,232 works that have been identified for disposal. Any money raised would go towards the conservation of the 167 important works we're keeping.
