In this new book, the Gallery's Director selects her personal favourites from amongst the City of London’s eclectic art collection. The Gallery’s focus is to collect works of direct relevance to the capital, whether in relation to the artist or to the subject of the work. Within this, the Gallery endeavours to acquire works of art which are representative of Londoners, and to be an art gallery about London for London.
The book spans from Pre-Raphaelite landscapes and Victorian scenes to contemporary artist impressions of London: stopping at sculpture, history painting and impressionism along the way. Take a colourful journey into the City’s past, from dramatic events like the Great Fire of London to the ebb and flow of daily life in the capital.
While featuring some of the Gallery’s most popular highlights, this book also reveals some of its lesser known artworks. It includes a combination of works which are currently on display, and some which are not: proving an invaluable resource for seasoned gallery goers and general art fans alike.
