The HELP Portfolio was conceived and developed during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdowns by artist Sue Arrowsmith, collector Christian Mathews, Jealous Gallery and Print Studio director Dario Illari, and Cristea Roberts Gallery director David Cleaton-Roberts. Sixteen artists donated a print to the portfolio, the sale of which benefits sixteen charities. Each artist personally selected the charity they wished the funds to go to. Artist Ian Davenport selected Paintings in Hospitals as his charity to support. Jealous Gallery has also kindly donated a full portfolio to the Paintings in Hospitals collection so that the artworks can be exhibited in health and care spaces across the UK.
