The main hall at Bankfield Museum is hung with several works by John Holland (1829-1886), held in Calderdale Museums Service’s collection.
Holland was born in Nottingham and painted landscapes and coastal scenes. He lived in Hebden Bridge for a few years, around 1867, and exhibited locally in Halifax and Hebden. The artworks to be displayed include views of Mytholmroyd, Cragg Vale, Todmorden, Burnley Valley and Hebden Bridge.
