FAQs
How do I find a specific artwork on the website and any related information that the Estate holds?

This website is comprised of two main sections: the ARTWORKS and the ARCHIVE. The ARTWORKS is a catalogue raisonné – a comprehensive list of works by Barry Flanagan. The Archive, found in the research tab, brings together supporting material, including the artist’s sketches, photographs, diaries and personal papers.

Both sections can be accessed several ways and are interlinked.

Search by keyword

Simply enter one or more keywords in the SEARCH field. You will be presented with a list of corresponding search results. These results can be divided by category, e.g. Archive Files, Artworks, Events, Exhibitions, Media, Posts, Press, Publications, Other. Select one of the results to view more information. The number of results available in each category will be visible in brackets.

All artwork records are displayed with any linked archive records. All connected entries will be displayed underneath the artwork details alongside related exhibitions, events, publications, and media. Alternatively, when searching a specific artwork, filters can be selected to go directly to various connected records eg. Events, Exhibitions, Media etc.

If you are interested in searching our online ARCHIVE you have two options. Either browsing using the HIERARCHY as your starting point or the INDEX.

The Hierarchy

The structure of an archive catalogue is hierarchical. This structure operates in much the same way as the folders stored on a computer, where a folder may contain one or more associated folders and files. Here the folders represent groups of records called series.

The main series are:

JBF/1  Sketches, maquettes and writings, 1965-2009

JBF/2  Diaries, 1976-2006

JBF/3   Photographic material, c.1920-2009

JBF/4  Audio visual material, 1982-2009

JBF/5  Press and printed material, 1966-2009

JBF/6  Operational papers, 1959-2009

JBF/7  Other interests and research, 1964-2008

The Index

The INDEX is a list of all the files contained within the archive catalogue. They are identical to those in the hierarchy but arranged as an alphabetised list.

What is the difference between the physical archive and the online archive?

Our physical archive is comprised of 160 boxes of sketchbooks, diaries, correspondence, writings, photographs and casting records that span the whole of Flanagan’s career from the late 1950s to 2009.  Our online archive offers access to this catalogue of records, with 2,500 scanned documents available to view.  However for various reasons not all our records are available online.  If you are interested in visiting us in person please contact us.
