National Bank Collection
Over 7,000 works of art to discover
Over the years, National Bank has built up an impressive collection of art, which it proudly displays in its offices, branches and subsidiaries across Canada. With over 7,000 original works of art, it currently ranks as one of the largest corporate collections in Canada. It is also continually growing, with some 50 new acquisitions every year.
This distinctive collection reflects the history of Quebec and Canadian art from 1895 to the present and includes paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures and photographs.
By acquiring artwork, we directly support artists and creators across Canada and
foster a feeling of pride in our collective heritage, while shining the spotlight on Canadian talent and enriching the surroundings for thousands of employees and clients.
The Bank is also proud to partner with major cultural institutions, including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and the OSM. The Bank also contributes to the fundraising campaigns of the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation and the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec Foundation, and supports numerous large-scale cultural initiatives across Canada.
