Randolph Gallery

Randolph Gallery

The Randolph Gallery within the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford was the primary ground floor space of Cockerell’s 1845 University Galleries, and has always been used for the display of principally classical sculpture. Originally the space was lit by clerestory windows to the north and south; the windows to the south remain, but the north lights were fully blocked in 1997 by a courtyard infill scheme.

The refurbishment works were identified in the masterplan for the museum. The works included restoring the Grade I listed space with the original 19C paint scheme replicated, and new lighting installed to the north to restore the sense of natural light from each side that was provided by Cockerell’s original design.
