Exhibition Curator Jessica Sutcliffe said: “I am delighted that the archive of my mother’s work has been accepted by the Bodleian in the city where she spent most of her working life. To mark the gift with an exhibition of her photographs is doubly pleasing and I hope it will be not only enjoyed by her customers from the past who may be unaware of her early experiments, but also by a new audience who will appreciate the scope and artistry of her work.”

Richard Ovenden, Bodley’s Librarian at the Bodleian Libraries, said: “Helen Muspratt was a great photographer making some of the most remarkable images by a British photographer of the last century. As a female professional she was also a pioneer, and the generous gift of her archive allows her artistic and commercial work – much of it undertaken in Oxford – to be preserved and made available for study and research.”
