The LSA Art Collection is unusual in that it has been amassed purely through public donations, many by bequest. However there are a number of items in the Collection that were given an accession number but the acquisition method is unknown?

Maybe one of your ancestors donated to the Collection? Perhaps family probate records dating from 1925 onwards could fill in some blanks?

Any information you have will be gratefully received.
