The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation pursues a programme of cultural diplomacy furthering an understanding and appreciation of Scottish art and creativity outside Scotland through exhibitions, events, publishing and education. The Foundation also owns a renowned collection of Scottish art comprising over 600 works from eighteenth century masters to contemporaries. The collection dates back to the 1960s when Flemings investment bank, in recognition of its Scottish origins, began to acquire Scottish art to hang in its offices worldwide. Following the sale of the bank in 2000, the collection was vested in the Fleming- Wyfold Art Foundation. The Foundation has established a ‘museum without walls’ strategy using its collection to initiate exhibitions of Scottish art outside Scotland. The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation is a registered charity in England and Wales (No.1080197).
