The Heritage Collection of the House of Commons contains over 500 individual prints and drawings. The most important elements of this collection are preliminary studies that provide invaluable documentation on many of the paintings and architectural decorative features in the House of Commons.

In the 1990s, the Curatorial Services division of the House of Commons was privileged to acquire the papers and drawings of R. Eleanor Milne, Dominion Sculptor (1962-1993), which related to the different projects in which she was involved during her thirty-year term on Parliament Hill. Her collection of drawings contains approximately 400 items - watercolours, pastels, pencil drawings and ink studies - concerning the architectural sculpture series and stained glass windows.
