21 tiles of tin enamelled earthenware painted in colours supplementing the collection of Dutch tiles given by this donor.

Various illustrations. 17th century. 1 French tile of a pastoral scene, mid 18th.century. These tiles are part of a long series of works of art from the collection of the late Henry Van den Bergh which have found their way to museums through the Art Fund at different periods since 1909, either being presented by himself, or, following his death in 1937, by his heirs. The Van den Bergh collection not surprisingly, was strong in the work of Dutch artists, particularly of the 19th century.
