A CATALOGUE detailing more than 1500 oil paintings in public ownership in Hertfordshire is being launched.

The Hertfordshire Catalogue is being unveiled today (Thursday) at the Market Hill Rooms in Royston.

Royston's mayor, Cllr Paul Grimes, and Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, will be at the launch.

Mr Lilley said: "This is a fantastic initiative. For the first time, people can see the terrific range of art which we own but which few of us know exist. It shows where all the publicly owned oil paintings in the county are to be found.

"They are in art galleries, museums, council buildings, public libraries, schools and colleges - even a golf club. Together they provide a fascinating insight in the cultural life of Hertfordshire.
