More about

Green Templeton College is home to a small and eclectic collection of paintings dating from the seventeenth century to the present day. Many of the paintings are twentieth-century portraits depicting key figures connected to Green Templeton and the former Green and Templeton Colleges (which merged in 2008 to form Green Templeton), including former heads of house, founders and benefactors. Portraits include a fine study of Professor Sir Richard Doll, the foremost epidemiologist of the twentieth century who was the Founder Warden of Green College, in oil on board by J. Anthony Wills. There are also a number of eighteenth- and twentieth-century landscapes. It is stressed that the paintings at Green Templeton College are not in public ownership. In accordance with the charitable aims of the College, which is a private institution, we are including our paintings on this website to widen public awareness and for the benefit of scholarship. Green Templeton College is usually closed to the public. However, occasionally the College allows public access to the Radcliffe Observatory to view the paintings in the Common Room. This is strictly by appointment only through the College Bursar.
