The Central Bank’s Art Collection is perhaps the largest private art collection in the country with more than 150 pieces. Paintings make up about seventy-five percent of the collection, in oils and watercolour. The remainder comprises works in mixed media, photographs and sculptures in wood, copper, ceramic and concrete.The collection includes the works of numerous renowned Trinidad and Tobago artists including LeRoy Clarke, Jackie Hinkson, Pat Bishop, Carlisle Chang, Sybil Atteck, Ken Morris, Sonnylal Rambissoon, Marguerite Wyke, Garnet Ifill, Luise Kimme, Peter Minshall and Che Lovelace.
The Bank has always been committed to sharing its collection with the public and periodically mounts exhibitions to provide this opportunity. The Bank has produced a book entitled: Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago – Four Decades of Pride which showcases many of the pieces in the collection.
