The online Catalogue Raisonné represents a database of the complete prints of Brian Rice from 1953 to 2010. As such, it is a work in progress and future prints will be added as they are produced.

The catalogue has been organised by date of making and each entry contains a given order which describes the prints in detail. This has been compiled from Brian Rice's own archive in Somerset, from museums, private collections and the internet.

A catalogue raisonné in book form was published in 2013, called Brian Rice: Catalogue Raisonné of Prints 1953-2013. See Publications for details.

Works have been sorted into three major categories for convenience – Prints, Hybrids and Ancillaries.

Prints (P001-P197) list original prints by Brian Rice. Hybrids (H01-73) describes works unique to Rice's oeuvre that sit in between painting and printmaking. A 'hybrid' is a piece of work which has begun life as a print but which is then taken out of the printing milieu and worked on by hand. Ancillaries (A01-37) describes an original design which has been produced by a printing process and cannot for various reasons be classified as an original print, including a few early textile samples.
