This collection is comprised of around 2700 original artworks dating from 1940-2000s, plus 35 cuttings books and a small quantity of magazines. The material was donated to the BCA by the Cummings family. The collection is largely catalogued.
Another 1200 Cummings cartoons can be found in the Beaverbrook Foundation Collection.
We also hold around 3500 newspaper cuttings of Michael Cummings' work. These can be found on the BCA catalogue.
