Hockney and Grayson Perry were featured in the top 5 most popular works, whilst Patrick Caulfield, Gilbert & George and Marc Quinn also made the shortlist.

100 signed limited edition works have been signed by Sir Antony and will be given to the first 100 supporters who give £950 or more to Art Everywhere, to help support the costs of production. Sir Antony said: "Works in public collections form an important part of our collective visual memory, marking a particular place, time and person. It is great that these works are being celebrated and shared in this way."
