The Artists' Collecting Society (ACS) was established in June 2006 by Lady Bridgeman, founder of Bridgeman Images. ACS now represent over 500 artists including Frank Auerbach, Eileen Cooper and Paula Rego, and more than 500 estates, such as Howard Hodgkin, Barbara Hepworth and Lucian Freud. 

ACS’ company structure is unique. We are a not for profit Community Interest Company which means that all profit we make is legally locked into the company and has to be used to benefit the artistic community.  ACS currently sponsors bursaries for students at the Royal Academy Schools, Falmouth University, City and Guilds of London Art School, The Slade, Edinburgh University as well as several art prizes for emerging artists.
