The paintings at Ushaw College include some notable originals and copies of famous works, many of which, as the papers indicate, have subsequently been sold on, such as Perugino ‘s Annunciation, a possible Van Dyke portrait of Reubens ‘ first wife, a Van de Neer painting, and a German diptych. Of those paintings still remaining at the college, by far the most important is a rare work by Franz von Rohden. Indeed, the college owns five Rohden paintings, which is the largest collection by this Nazarene artist anywhere in Britain. Many paintings were originally purchased by the presidents for the college. For example, Charles Newsham (1837-1863) acquired Rohden ‘s Crucifixion, as well as a number of paintings no longer at the college, including one of St Charles Borromeo and a portrait of Mary Magdalene.
