The Fitzwilliam Museum was founded by Richard 7th Viscount Fitzwilliam, a scholarly late-18th century collector. He bequeathed his collection, and a sum of money for housing it, to his Alma Mater, the University of Cambridge, in order to promote 'the increase of learning'. Since his day, many gifts, bequests and acquisitions (some grant-aided by The Art Fund) have benefited the Museum and in 1997 it was designated a Museum of National Importance.
